Abstract

It is known that infill walls considerably change the behaviour of frames under horizontal loads. However, on this subject, there is not enough knowledge and experience accumulations compared with some other subjects in structural analysis. In order to contribute to the behaviour of infilled frames, a series of experiments were carried out under statical loads which were applied in the diagonal direction to the infilled samples having various conjunctions and thicknesses and framed with steel profiles. During the experimental research, the decrease in the horizontal rigidity caused by the separation and sliding between the frame and the infill should be taken into consideration. It was known from previous studies that after
