This paper presents the hysteretic behaviour of three 1/3-scale three-storey steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) coupled shear walls (CSWs) under cyclic loads. The deformation, ductility, energy dissipation, stiffness and crack propagation of the specimens are also discussed and analysed. The results show steel fibre improves the ductility and energy dissipation capacity, and restrains the crack propagation of the CSWs, and delays the degradation of their lateral stiffness and force. Based on the experiments, a simple trilinear model is developed to simulate the skeleton curve of lateral force–displacement of the SFRC CSWs. Through analysing several typical cycles of the hysteretic of these CSWs, the feature points of the proposed hysteretic model are defined which subsequently is used to evaluate the complete hysteretic behaviour of the CSWs. Using existing experimental data and this study, several representative experimental hysteretic cycles are compared with the proposed model. The result indicates a good agreement is reached between the model and experimental results. [less ▲]

This paper discusses and quantifies the minimum requirements of walls and tie-columns in confined masonry (CM) buildings located in earthquake-prone regions. A research database including 238 damaged CM buildings obtained from the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake survey is established and comprehensively examined. The requirements of masonry walls in CM buildings are discussed, and a simplified tie-column density index is proposed for evaluating the potential damage of the structures. Besides, the minimum requirements of reinforced concrete tie-columns and their maximum allowable spacing in CM buildings at different seismic intensity zones are discussed. [less ▲]
