The Design of Ductile Reinforced Concrete Structural Walls for Earthquake Resistance
A capacity design procedure for reinforced concrete structures with earthquake laoding 'tells' the structure exactly, where plastification may or shall occur. Hence, only the chosen potential plastic regions need to be designed and detailed for adequate ductility. In reinforced structural walls this plastic hinged region is normally at the base of the wall. The design for shear resistance and the stabilising of the vertical reinforcing bars in this region assume special importance. This deterministic method leads to a high degree of earthquake safety and due to the reduction of the equivalent static forces to an economic solution.
