2019年11月15日下午15時，我院特邀美國辛辛那提大學Bahram M. Shahrooz教授在我校土木樓212報告廳作了題為“Performance of Hybrid Coupled Core Wall Systems Subjected to Low Seismic Events and Wind Loads”的學術報告。報告會由土木工程學院院長助理門進杰教授主持，我校百余名研究生及相關專業教師參加了本期學術報告會betway体育。
Coupled core wall systems have been shown to provide excellent energy dissipation in high seismic areas. The current U.S. seismic provisions provide design and detailing requirements for these high-seismic systems. However, the requirements given in the provisions for low-seismic applications are be short of extensive research. The requirements given for low-seismic applications are commonly used to detail the system in wind applications. To address the limited available data regarding design and detailing of hybrid core walls in low seismic and wind applications, researchers at the University of Cincinnati, Washington State University, and Huaqiao University will conduct a coordinated analytical and experimental research program. To facilitate selection of the test specimens, a prototype structure was developed and designed in accordance with the current provisions for low-seismic applications. Test components and subassemblies will be subjected to numerous cycles representing wind load effects.
