Abstract:
This paper presents a methodology for designing, fabricating, and testing small-scale dynamic models of precast concrete shearwalls originating in the construction of large panel precast concrete buildings. Design and construction of a set of 3/32-scale models which satisfy dynamic similitude is presented. Resonent vibration testing of three-story and five-story precast concrete shearwall models on a small shake table is described. Additional monotonic and cyclic tests on six five-story shearwall models under simulated earthquake loading are presented. The main parameters in these tests were the amount of steel in the vertical ties and cyclic versus monotonic loading.
