|Title:||Lateral Loading of Shear Wall Models|
|Advisor:||Heidebrecht, A. C.|
|Keywords:||Civil Engineering;Civil Engineering|
|Abstract:||<p>This thesis describes the development of a technique to build small-scale shear wall building models using a suitable concrete mortar. Tests were conducted to study the behaviour of such models under lateral load. The analysis of the problem was done by treating the model as a thin-walled cantilever beam based on Vlasov's thin-walled beam theory. The test and analytical results are compared to investigate the validity of this approach.</p>|
