This paper compares the measured lateral load behavior of a 0.4-scale “hybrid” precast concrete wall test specimen with the behavior of a second precast specimen designed to emulate monolithic cast-in-place reinforced concrete shear walls. Both walls have the same overall geometry and are constructed by placing rectangular wall panels across horizontal joints. The lateral resistance at the joints of the “emulative” system is provided by mild [i.e., Grade 400 (U.S. Grade 60)] steel bars, whereas… CONTINUE READING
