Abstract

This study shows a calculation procedure using a macro model to evaluate the shear strength of multi-story precast concrete structural walls with columns at both sides. The proposed model is composed of two shear resisting mechanisms, the one before and another after the slip at the horizontal joint. Before the wall slips, the truss and total arch mechanisms for the whole structure resist the shear forces. However, after the slip, the shear resisting mechanism is composed of only the story arch mechanism against the additional shear force. Thus, the total
