Abstract: This report presents the results of an experimental and analytical study on the in-plane flexural inelastic behavior of concrete filled sandwich steel panel walls. Four large scale walls were tested under cyclic loading; the tested walls included specimens with and without boundary elements, two different spacing of the tie bars, and effectiveness of tie bar connection details. The tested walls had an aspect ratio larger than two. Ductile performance was achieved by development of the plastic moment capacity of the cross section. All tested specimens showed stable ductile performance. Finite element analysis was used to establish models simulating the behavior of the tested specimens and to conduct limited parametric studies. Based on the experimental and analytical findings, seismic design recommendations were formulated.

Analytical and Experimental Investigation of Self-centering Steel Plate Shear Walls

MCEER-14-0010 | 12/19/2014 |718 pages | $35
Keywords: self-centering; steel plate shear wall; moment frame; rocking connection; seismic response; resilient structure; seismic performance
Abstract: This report presents the results of an analytical and experimental study on a proposed self-centering steel plate shear wall (SC-SPSW) system. To investigate the behavior of SC-SPSWs, a multi-facility experimental program was developed and conducted. First, investigation of one-third scaled single-bay three-story frames was conducted at the Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory at the University at Buffalo, consisting of quasi-static cyclic and dynamic shake-table testing. Second, a full-scale single-bay two-story specimen was conducted at the National Center for Earthquake Engineering in Taiwan subjected to an earthquake excitation loading using the pseudo-dynamic testing method. Furthermore, to assist in the design of SC-SPSWs, analytical models are developed in the computer programs SAP2000 and OpenSees. Additionally, also needed for the goal of practical implementation and design, fundamental knowledge on the kinematics of SC-SPSWs through detailed free body diagrams is established.
