Frame Idealization for Shear Wall Support Systems

The paper shows how a beam and column support system for a shear wall can be included in a plane frame analysis. This technique which is valid for both vertical and lateral load can be used to analyse the wall and its support system in one computer run. Comparison with finite element results illustrates the accuracy. I.A. MacLeod and D.R. Green
