Abstract

Bidirectional shake table tests are performed on standard hollow brick partitions, subjecting the partitions simultaneously to interstory relative displacements in their own plane and accelerations in the out-of-plane direction. Five couples of accelerograms are selected matching the target response spectrum provided by the U.S. code for nonstructural components (i.e., AC156) in order to investigate a wide range of seismic demand. Three damage states are considered and correlated to an engineering demand parameter, i.e. the interstory drift ratio. The tested specimen exhibits significant damage for 0.3% interstory drift and extensive damage for displacement close to 1.0%. The correlation between the dynamic characteristics of the test setup - in terms of damping ratio and natural frequency - and the recorded damage is evidenced
