Static and simulated seismic testing of the TRG-7 through -16 shear wall structures

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Results from the static, simulated seismic base excitation, and experimental modal analysis tests performed on the TRG-7 through -16 structures are reported. These results were used to establish the scalability of static and dynamic response measured on small structural models to the dynamic response of conventional concrete structures. In addition, these tests provided information concerning cumulative damage effects that occur in concrete structures when they are subjected to different dynamic load sequences. In contrast to previous results obtained in the early part of this program, TRG-7 through -16 responded to simulated seismic excitations with theoretical stiffness values until peak nominal ... continued below

Description

Results from the static, simulated seismic base excitation, and experimental modal analysis tests performed on the TRG-7 through -16 structures are reported. These results were used to establish the scalability of static and dynamic response measured on small structural models to the dynamic response of conventional concrete structures. In addition, these tests provided information concerning cumulative damage effects that occur in concrete structures when they are subjected to different dynamic load sequences. In contrast to previous results obtained in the early part of this program, TRG-7 through -16 responded to simulated seismic excitations with theoretical stiffness values until peak nominal base shear stress levels of 150 psi were reached. A summary of all experimental data obtained during this program is provided. 23 refs., 47 figs., 22 tabs.
