Abstract: The objective of the present contribution is to present the outcomes of an experimental campaign carried out in the frame of the European research program Smartcoco and aiming at validating a design approach for determining the shear performances of RC wall reinforced by multiple encased steel profiles. The experimental campaign comprises 6 walls, ranging from a classical RC wall taken as a reference to configurations with multiple profiles with studs or plate stiffeners to ensure the transfer of the longitudinal shear at the steel-concrete interface. Vertical cantilever tests were performed on the specimens specifically detailed to fail in shear. Tests are carried out on walls with a width of 240 mm, a length of 880 mm and a height of 2250 mm with a regular concrete quality (C25/30). This contribution describes the test specimens, summarizes their design, presents a summary of the most relevant observations and a short interpretation of the obtain results. It is concluded from this set of tests that the new design method is able to predict the shear capacity with a good accuracy and can therefore be considered as a suitable solution for designing practical cases.
