Specimen

The wall is a half-scale, four story rectangular wall with continuous reinforcement.

Specimen Type: Rectangular Wall

Specimen Material: Reinforced concrete with an average compressive strength of 8,300 psi.

Concrete (28-day) expected f'c = 5,000 psi
Material Properties
Concrete - RWN Foundation f'c = 8,980 psi ft = 930 psi E = NA
Concrete - RWN Wall Bottom f'c = 7,870 psi ft = 860 psi E = NA
Concrete - RWN Wall Top f'c = 6,880 psi ft = 770 psi E = NA
Reinforcement (ASTM A706) Fy = 60 ksi
Reinforcement - No. 4 bar Fy = 64.0 ksi Fu = 100.9 ksi
Reinforcement - No. 5 bar Fy = 72.1 ksi Fu = 98.2 ksi
Reinforcement - No. 6 bar Fy = 71.2 ksi Fu = 97.0 ksi
Reinforcement - No. 9 bar Fy = 67.4 ksi Fu = 92.0 ksi
