BSCE 2019, Undergraduate Research Project Title: A Study on the Effect of Shear Wall Configuration on the Seismic Performance of High-rise Reinforced Concrete Dual Systems

Abstract:

Literature on determining the optimal configuration of shear wall layout is limited. This is important in the design of lateral force resisting systems, particularly reinforced concrete dual systems. Because the Philippines is susceptible to earthquakes, efficient structural design against seismic loading should be given significant consideration. The primary aim of this study is to investigate the effect of different parameters such as shear wall thickness, shear wall length, shear wall location, and beam/column dimensions on the response of the structural model. Several test models are modeled and analyzed using ETABS software. Seismic provisions from ACI 318 - 14, ASCE 7 - 16, and NSCP 2015 are used. Results obtained from the software analysis are evaluated and the optimal shear wall configuration is determined. The seismic performance of the base model and optimal model are compared. Sample detailing is performed on the optimal model.
