In recent years, the seismic behavior of reinforced concrete bearing squat walls structures has been the object of several research works. This paper presents the results obtained in a wide experimental campaign carried out as a joint effort between the University of Bologna and the EUCENTRE labs in Pavia. This effort was devoted at the assessment of the seismic performances of structures (cellular structures) composed of lightly reinforced concrete/polystyrene sandwich bearing squat walls. In order to obtain a correct characterization of seismic behavior (stiffness, strength, ductility) of such structures, a number of tests were performed upon two dimensional (3.0 m by 3.0 m) non-traditional sandwich squat walls (with and without openings) and upon 6 meter tall H shaped substructure.

Abstract

In recent years, the seismic behavior of reinforced concrete bearing squat walls structures has been the object of several research works. This paper presents the results obtained in a wide experimental campaign carried out as a joint effort between the University of Bologna and the EUCENTRE labs in Pavia. This effort was devoted at the assessment of the seismic performances of structures (cellular structures) composed of lightly reinforced concrete/polystyrene sandwich bearing squat walls. In order to obtain a correct characterization of seismic behavior (stiffness, strength, ductility) of such structures, a number of tests were performed upon two dimensional (3.0 m by 3.0 m) non-traditional sandwich squat walls (with and without openings) and upon 6 meter tall H shaped substructure.
