- The objective of this research project is to investigate the inelastic behavior and hysteresis rules of lowrise RC perforated shear walls through experimental and analytical studies based on various types of monotonic and earthquake loads. Results derived are then applied to seismic response analysis of typical low-rise shear wall buildings. The studies also involve development of backbone curves and equivalent viscous damping of walls as well as sensitivity analysis of design parameters for building systems. Comparison between experimental and calculated results is favorable. Hysteresis rules are based on dissipated energy envelopes calculated from experimental data for different loading states.
