• Application study •
In order to reduce the structural drift stiffness and
weaken the seismic response of structures under a strong earthquake,
a reinforced concrete shearwall with vertical seams has been designed.
Based on its behavior under the horizontal loads, the model of
calculating its drift stiffness and the corresponding formulae are
established. The results obtained from the model were found to agree
well with the experimental results.
