Post-tensioned hybrid coupled wall system has desirable seismic characteristics including self-centering capability and tolerance for large nonlinear displacements with limited damage. In this study, the behavior of concrete coupled wall subassemblies with post-tensioned steel coupling beam was experimentally evaluated. In this system, the coupling beam is not embedded into the walls, and the coupling of the concrete walls is accomplished by post-tensioning the steel coupling beam to the walls using unbonded post-tensioning strands. Steel angles and friction dampers were used at the beam-to-wall connection region for energy dissipation. In the first series of tests, a friction damper with different values of the clamping force was tested under two different loading frequencies. In the second series, seven quasi-static cyclic tests were conducted on 2/3-scale subassemblies of the post-tensioned hybrid coupled wall system. The test specimens included a control specimen without energy dissipation device, a specimen with steel angles and four specimens with friction dampers. In addition, one of the tested specimens with dampers was re-tested to investigate the structural behavior and residual capacity of the system during a strong aftershock. The test parameters included the type of energy dissipation device, the initial stress of post-tensioning strands and the amount of damper normal force. The test results show that the subassemblies equipped with friction dampers exhibit excellent lateral stiffness, strength, ductility and energy dissipation and are capable of withstanding large nonlinear cyclic deformations up to the drift of 8%, without residual displacements and without significant damage to the system. Whereas the subassembly equipped with steel angles provide lower energy dissipation capacity and because of the low-cycle fatigue fracture of angles, energy dissipation and load carrying capacities of the specimen decrease significantly.
