Shallow-section-shearwall (SSS) structure is a kind of newly developed residential structure form in China. With the ratio of section depth to width being 5 to 8, the SSS structure is the intergradation of traditional shearwall structure and the erose-section-column (ESC) frame structure, and is widely used in buildings with 10 to 25 stories. However, the commercialized software can only be used to carry out the elastic analysis, and the detail specifications on SSS structures are roughly duplicated from traditional shearwall structure. The horizontal cyclic loading tests on SSS structures manifest the whole process from elastic to plastic, until structures fail. The specimens are divided into two groups: one with flanged-wall, the other without. The two groups have 3 specimens each, the ratios of section depth to width are 5, 6.5 and 8 respectively. The results denote that when the section is shallow, the longitudinal reinforcement in the wall will firstly yield; on the other hand, when the section is deep, the stirrups in the linking-beam will firstly yield. With the ratio being 6.5, the specimens possess the highest load bearing capacity, for the more; the energy dissipation ability is also the best.
