Performance Evaluation Factors

Table 2 shows the relationship between categories of damage level for precast concrete curtain wall panels specified in the Japanese Architectural Standard Specifications (JASS 14) [11] and the seismic intensity scale of the Japanese Meteorological Agency [12]. The story drift of curtain wall panels evaluated in our study was selected based on this table. The fatigue test was carried out for three levels, i. e., a large earthquake, with the story drift of the curtain wall set at R= 1/100; a moderate earthquake, set at R = 1/200; and, a small earthquake, set at R= 1/300.
