|Coupled shear wall system is an effective structural system frequently adopted in design of high-rise buildings to resist lateral loads such as
earthquake loads or wind loads. Coupling beam designed following structural codes and provisions like ACI 318 is a structural fuse, so that
it can dissipate lots of input energy generated by an earthquake as being deformed prior to other structural elements. This study tested on
four diagonally reinforced concrete coupling beams constructed following ACI 318-14 to assess the cyclic behavior of them according to the
amount of diagonal reinforcement.
