Abstract

Steel sheet shear walls with burring holes are employed in low and mid-rise buildings in seismically active regions. A configuration with burrs on the inside enables the thinner wall and omitting the machining of equipment holes. The effects of cross-rails which are generally designed to strengthen the bearing capacities of the studs, on 2.73~4.53m height shear walls were clarified by finite element analysis and experiments. Post-buckling behavior depends on tension fields restrained by the cross-rails. The formulas of the allowable strengths and the indexes of ultimate strengths were developed using the mechanisms.

Shear Resistance Mechanisms on Steel Sheet Shear Walls with Burring Holes and Cross-Rails

Steel sheet shear walls with burring holes are employed in low and mid-rise buildings in seismically active regions. A configuration with burrs on the inside enables the thinner wall and omitting the machining of equipment holes. The effects of cross-rails which are generally designed to strengthen the bearing capacities of the studs, on 2.73~4.53m height shear walls were clarified by finite element analysis and experiments. Post-buckling behavior depends on tension fields restrained by the cross-rails. The formulas of the allowable strengths and the indexes of ultimate strengths were developed using the mechanisms.
