In this paper, two low-rise shear wall specimens are tested on the shaking table, one is shear wall with CFST frame and embedded steel-plate, the other one is no concrete outside the steel-plate in comparison of the first one. The reduced scale of the two specimens is 1/12. The seismic wave “Taft” is input in the shaking table test. Based on the experiment, the author conducts the time history analysis (including elastic stage and plastic stage) of the specimens. The calculated results and measured results are compared.

Keywords: CFST frame, shaking table test, steel-plate, time history analysis.
