Residual seismic capacity of ductile RC frame with wing walls based on full-scale loading test
In order to use a damaged building continuously after earthquake, owners and/or stakeholders need to understand residual seismic capacity of the building. In Japan, a method to evaluate residual seismic capacity for damaged buildings had been developed. In order to evaluate residual seismic capacity of damaged building, the damage level of structural elements should be evaluated properly. This paper presents the results of damage analysis based on experimental data obtained from a full-scale static loading test  on a five-story reinforced concrete building tested at Building Research Institute. The damage rating for the specimens evaluated by the residual seismic capacity concept  was ”Moderate” or ”Heavy” at 0.5% and 1% building drift angle despite the structure maintaining horizontal load carrying capacity. This implies that the applied method gives a conservative result for ductile buildings, such as relatively new moment resisting frames designed after 1981. In order to apply the method used in this paper to new buildings, the damage evaluation method for structural elements should be advanced more in the future.
