Experiment-1: Full Scale Four-Story Reinforced Concrete and Post-Tensioned Concrete Buildings at E-Defense
Experiment Type: Shake Table
Description: A series of shaking table tests were conducted on two, full-scale, four-story buildings: a conventional reinforced concrete (RC) building, and a high-performance post-tensioned (PT) building. The two buildings were similar in geometry and configuration, with shear walls in one principle direction, and moment frames in the other direction. The buildings were simultaneously subjected to increasing intensity shaking until large deformations were reached to assess performance in service, design, and maximum considered earthquake shaking.
