Project: Experimental and Analytical Investigation of Nonrectangular Walls Under Multidirectional Loads
28 Jul 2009 | Series | Contributor(s): , ,
Previous laboratory testing of T-shaped walls loaded uniaxially along the direction of the stem of the T has indicated that these walls can be detailed using methods similar to those used for rectangular walls. However, multidirectional loading of these walls has not been carried out at large...

Reinforced Concrete Column Subjected to Cyclic Transverse Load
10 Feb 2009 | Series
Experiment contributed by Santiago Pujol. This test was part of an experimental program that included a total of eight test assemblies. An assembly consisted of two test specimens joined by a center stub. Each specimen was intended to represent a cantilever column under axial load and a point...
Cyclic Lateral Loading of a Full-Scale Reinforced Concrete Flat-Plate Structure
12 Feb 2009 | Series
Experiment contributed by Damon R. FickThe test specimen was a full-scale two-span three-story reinforced concrete flatplate structure consisting of six columns spaced at 20 ft in each direction supporting a 7 in. thick slab. There was a 5 ft cantilevered slab around the perimeter of the...

(K-12/Public) Study of Shear and Torsion
05 Oct 2010 | Series | Contributor(s): Gregory Pluta, Dan Kuchma, Thomas Frankie, NEES EOT
Designed for K-12 viewers, and also those in the general public - this video describes the relationship between shear and torsion - and how this affects the failure of concrete columns. Conducted at the University of Illinois, and funded by the NEES Network - this video is a great example of the...
