The results of an experimental research program concerned with the response of reinforced concrete walls under cyclic loading are presented in this paper. Information pertinent to the experimental work, including description of the test rig, instrumentation of the specimens, control procedure of the tests, details of model manufacture, properties of materials used, and choice of the loading regime is first given. The description of the experiments is presented subsequently, together with details of the loading procedure and the crack development. Only brief comments on the results obtained are given in this paper. Further discussion of the experimental results and comparisons between experimental and analytical work are given in a companion paper.
