Analysis and Design of Shear Wall Structures

An attempt is made in this paper to summarise the behaviour of a range of shear wall systems, starting from an elementary planar shear wall to a complex arrangement of core systems. Emphasis is placed on the structural interaction that exists between the walls and floor system. Significance of non-uniform torsion theory as applied to open core structures is explained with a practical example problem. A two-step procedure is presented for a comprehensive analysis of complex shear wall buildings; one for evaluating the structural contribution of the out-of-plane stiffness of the floor system and the other for a 3-dimensional analysis in which open core structures are modelled as equivalent columns.
