2019年11月15日下午15时，我院特邀美国辛辛那提大学Bahram M. Shahrooz教授在我校土木楼212报告厅作了题为“Performance of Hybrid Coupled Core Wall Systems Subjected to Low Seismic Events and Wind Loads”的学术报告。报告会由土木工程学院院长助理门进杰教授主持，我校百余名研究生及相关专业教师参加了本期学术报告会。
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.
