Experiment-8: Steel Connector Plate Wall Testing
Experiment Type: Large Scale
Description: Testing at the University of Hawaii @ Manoa as part of Project Task 2: Connector Development. This experiment is the third round of testing Type I hybrid masonry connector plates. Multiple pairs of previously tested tapered fuse connectors were slip-critically bolted to side plates, which were welded to a steel beam above the masonry wall specimens. These tests were performed to verify that the behavior of multiple pairs of connector plates in series is similar to the behavior of the individual pairs of connector plates. In addition, the tests were performed to observe the interaction between the steel connector plates and masonry wall specimens.
