IMPROVING STEEL PLATE SHEAR WALL CODE DESIGN METHODOLOGY
0.0 out of 5 stars
11 Apr 2014 | Publications | Contributor(s): James T Enright
Current code based design of steel plate shear wall (SPSW) systems does not take into account the lateral force resistance provided by the moment resisting frame which bounds the web-plate. The...

Simulation of the Seismic Response of Low Aspect Ratio Concrete Walls
04 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): Josh Rocks
Recent studies have shown that predictive equations used in North America for the peak shear strength of low aspect ratio walls are biased and that the scatter in the ratios of measured to...
