To study the flexural behaviors of the concrete shear walls with precast hollow slab, one cast in-situ reinforced concrete shear wall and two precast two-way hollow slab shear walls (PTHSWs) vertical joint were tested under low cyclic loading.
The study showed that vertical joints of PTHSW are safe and reliable to ensure the effective connection between the assembly units. The ductility coefficient of shear wall is larger than 7, so this kind of shear wall has good ability of deformation especially under earthquake load.
The interface can effectively ensure the integral performance of PTHSWs and its effect on the flexural behaviors of PTHSWs could be ignored.
