Title: Experimental Stresses and Deflections
of a Model Shear Wall Structure
Author(s): M. Holmes, A. W. Astill, and L. H. Martin
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 667-682
Keywords: deflection; high-rise buildings; models; multistory buildings; reinforced concrete;
shear walls; stresses; structural design; wind pressure.
Abstract:Describes the results of experiments on a 1/48 th scale model shear wall structure under the action of simulated wind load. They were carried out to provide information to aid the design of a 32-story block of apartments. The measured stresses and deflections are compared with values derived from a theoretical consideration of simplified structures.
