States of the art and practice in the optimum seismic design and analytical response prediction of r/c frame-wall structures
The states of the art and practice in seismic design and analysis of R/C frame-coupled wall structural systems are evaluated. The major source of evaluations was based on integrated analytical and experimental investigations of the seismic responses of a 15-story R/C frame-coupled wall structural system, used as the example in these evaluations. The step by step design of the 15 story structure was carried out by considering each pertaining provision of the 1973 UBC, 1979 UBC, and ATC 3-06, which were considered to represent the state of the practice.
