Abstract:This paper presents experimental data on strength and deformation capacity of isolated structural walls. The data are applicable to walls used as lateral load resisting elements for wind or earthquake forces. The objective is to describe variables that influence strength and deformation capacity. Effects of load history, section shape, vertical and horizontal reinforcement confinement reinforcement, moment-to-shear ratio, axial compressive stress, and concrete strength are considered. Deformation capacities obtained from tests are discussed in terms of overall limits on lateral drift.
