Abstract [en]

In partially anchored shear walls, the leading stud is not fully anchored against the uplift; hence the uplifting force is resisted by the sheathing-to-framing joint along the bottom rail. These joint forces will introduce crosswise bending and shear in the bottom rail leading to possible splitting failures. To design partially anchored shear walls, plastic design methods can be used and, therefore, the bottom rails must not fail in a brittle manner. In this paper, results of two experimental programmes with respect to the splitting capacity of bottom rails with double-sided sheathing due to uplift in partially anchored shear walls are presented. This was evaluated varying the distance between the washer edge and the edge of the bottom rail, and the pith orientation of the bottom rail. The experimental results show two brittle failure modes for the bottom rail: (1) a crack opening from the bottom surface of the bottom rail and (2) a crack opening from the edge surface of the bottom rail. The results indicate that the distance from the edge of the washer to the edges of the bottom rail has a decisive influence on the load-carrying capacity and failure modes of the bottom rail.
