Seismic Design of Coupled Composite Plate Shear Walls / Concrete Filled (C-PSW/CF)

August 4, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Composite Plate Shear Wall / Concrete Filled (C-PSW/CF), also known as the SpeedCore system, is an efficient seismic force-resisting system for buildings. Two types of C-PSW/CF systems are possible: coupled and uncoupled. Seismic design requirements for uncoupled C-PSW/CF systems were addressed in ASCE/SEI 7-16 and AISC 341-16, Section H7. Coupled C-PSW/CF systems are more ductile and have more redundancy than uncoupled systems, but ASCE/SEI 7-16 did not assign seismic design factors in Table 12.2-1.
