Comparison of Solid and Perforated Hybrid Precast Concrete Shear Walls for Seismic Regions


This paper compares the measured lateral load behaviors of two 0.4-scale “hybrid” precast concrete wall test specimens – one wall with solid panels and the other with perforated panels. The test specimens have the same overall geometry and utilize a combination of mild [i.e., Grade 400 (U.S. Grade 60)] steel and high-strength unbonded post-tensioning (PT… (More)
