The Design of Plane Shear Walls with Openings by W.M. Jenkins

The paper is concerned with the design of plane, perforated shear walls, loaded in their plane by forces transverse to the axis of the wall. Attention is given to the reduction in wall flexural stiffness due to perforation, and to the stress distribution in the wall. The design data, presented in the form of charts, are based on analysis by the stiffness method in which the perforated wall is represented by wide columns connected by beams.
