Abstract


Partial walls separated from columns are generally treated as nonstructural elements because their behavior aren’t analyzed much. Partial walls jointed rigidly to RC frames raise horizontal load-carrying capacity, however they may give an influence on RC frames when they fall in brittle failure. Objective of this paper is to clarify the influence of partial walls falling in shear failure on RC frames through a static loading test and a shaking table test. The experiment shows that, after one of the partial walls fails, story drift rapidly increases. It shows progress of flexural deformation at one end of columns, and it may cause story collapse. The result is obtained from both loading tests.
