[distributor] Stiffness of low-aspect-ratio, reinforced concrete shear walls [microform] , Stiffness of low-aspect-ratio. Low aspect ratio reinforced concrete (RC) shear walls provide the lateral strength and stiffness for many low-rise to medium-rise buildings and nearly all safety-related nuclear structures.   Results from a series of experiments designed to measure the stiffness of low-aspect-ratio, reinforced-concrete shear walls subjected to simulated seismic inputs on a shake table are reported. The geometry of the test structures allows them to be modeled as single-degree-of-freedom systems. Forces were estimated from accelerometer measurements on masses attached to the Cited by: 5.

Product Information. Prepared by the Working Group on the Stiffness of Concrete Shear Wall Structures of the ASCE Dynamic Analysis Committee, this report aims to review the methods used to compute the in-plane stiffness of low aspect ratio reinforced concrete shear .   For buildings constructed with low-aspect-ratio reinforced concrete shear walls, a structural repair may not be necessary if the earthquake-induced displacement of the wall is less than the displacement associated with peak shear force.   Procedures defined in Appendix A of ACI were found to underestimate the strength of lightly reinforced walls and tended to overestimate the strength of walls with more than times the minimum web reinforcement ratio. A reasonable lower bound to the shear strength of low-rise walls with minimum web reinforcement was found to be 6 û f' by:

This paper is intended to evaluate the seismic performance of a twelve-story reinforced concrete moment-resisting frame structure with shear walls using 3D finite element models according to such seismic design regulations as Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) guideline and seismic building codes including Los Angeles Tall Building Structural Design Council (LATBSDC) by: The values of longitudinal and transverse reinforcement ratio used in the walls were and %, respectively for squat shear walls and and %, respectively for slender shear walls.
