The Distribution of Vertical Load in Shear Wall Buildings

This paper is concerned with the way in which vertical load is distributed in shear wall buildings. It deals in the main with tall buildings (height to width greater than l.5:1), but some of the conclusions reached may have applicability to other types of wall construction. I.A. MacLeod and H. Hosny
