Recommendations for Seismic Design of Hybrid Coupled Wall Systems

Hybrid Coupled Wall (HCW) systems are lateral-force-resisting systems composed of reinforced concrete walls coupled by steel beams. Extensive research has shown that HCW systems possess the necessary combination of stiffness, strength, and toughness for application in regions of moderate to high seismicity. ""Recommendations for Seismic Design of Hybrid Coupled Wall Systems"" synthesizes the existing information into helpful recommen...
