This study proposes an innovative wall system so called as hybrid precast walls (HW). HW uses both mild steel and high strength steel angles for flexural resistance across horizontal joint. High strength steel plates are used for steel angles connection at the horizontal precast joint and also at places where angles cross which assist for the re-centering property of the HW walls. HW is designed with mild steel to yield both tension and compression whereas the steel angles provide re-centering capability and thereby reducing lateral displacements. Efficiency of the structure depends upon the performance of both reinforcements accordingly to what it is meant to be. This paper presents the seismic performance studies of HW under gradually applied lateral static load. Experimental studies were carried out which account for steel yielding, concrete cracking and crushing. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
