Data are summarized from 107 laboratory tests on
reinforced concrete columns with rectangular cross
sections. In these tests the axial load on the column
was held nearly constant while cyclic lateral loads were
applied to cause column deformations in the inelastic
range. The data in this report were obtained from test
programs in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, and
Japan. Synoposes of each test program are presented and
the geometric and material properties of each column
test specimen are summarized. Plots of lateral load vs.
lateral deflection are also shown for each specimen. The
lateral load-lateral deflection histories for all
specimens are presented in digital format on a computer
disk. Much of this data has only been available in
analog format, and is presented for the first time in
digital format in this report.
