Reinforced Concrete Shear Walls

The chapter on seismic behavior and retrofit of existing reinforced concrete shear walls is still wide open. Researchers and engineers around the world are trying hard to develop new materials and innovative techniques for seismic upgrade of concrete structures. But why is this so important? Reinforced concrete shear walls have long been recognized as suitable structural systems, providing both lateral resistance and drift control in RC buildings. However these older… Read More »Reinforced Concrete Shear Walls
