This performance database contains material and geometric properties, experimental results and reference information from cyclic, lateral-load tests of reinforced concrete columns with spiral reinforcement or circular hoops.
The properties, force-displacement histories, and experiment data files are provided in spreadsheet and graphical formats. The experiment data files can be downloaded in CSV format, which can be loaded into most applications, including Excel. The data file contains force-displacement pairs: the first column contains the displacement values (in mm), the second column contains the lateral-load values (in kN). Data files can be plotted and compared to one another using the inDEED earthquake data visualization tool. See inDEED for more information about the tool.
The database was assembled by researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), who collected data from 92 tests (Taylor and Stone, 1993).
