In some areas with the probability of chemical attacks such as near the sea or oil refinery, steel plate shear walls (SPSWs) may be affected by corrosion and after a while gets loss of efficiency. In present study, the effect of web plate corrosion on pushover behavior of a single SPSW is investigated. For this purpose, experimental tests were conducted on SPSW specimen whose web plate corroded according to ASTM B117 and also on uncorroded specimen for comparison. The specimens were subjected to pushover loading and performances of the SPSWs were evaluated. The results show that the corrosion has a significant effect on the behavior of the SPSWs such as initial stiffness and shear capacity.
