Abstract

Cooperating with a large experiment program for RC frame directed at NCREE, this study revised the performance based design objectives by cyclic loading tests for stone veneers with different construction methods in Taiwan. The configuration of interior and exterior veneers was arranged according to the thickness of originally designed RC walls. Different types of attachment devices for interior and exterior veneers were presented, and expected drift ratio values from different standards were tested in this experiment as well. Summarizing the results of tests, interior veneers attached by grouting with cement mortar showed the poorest seismic deformation capability when the drift ratio of RC frame achieved 0.5%. The exterior veneers fastened by mechanical anchors showed good seismic performance and only minor damage in out-of-plane deformation.
