Video Footage, 7-Story Building Test
Seismic Response of a 7-Story RC Building
The objective of this research program was to verify the seismic response of reinforced concrete wall systems designed for lateral forces obtained from a displacement-based design methodology. A 7-story full-scale slice of a reinforced concrete residential building with cantilever structural walls was tested on the UCSD shake table. The project was funded by the Englekirk Board of Advisors, an industry group supporting research at the Charles Lee Powell Structural Laboratories at the University of California, San Diego.
