Forming part of a three-volume (four-part) series providing guidance on the 'stability system' of a building, the series focuses specifically on lateral load resisting systems, triangulated (framed) vertical bracing, shear walls and moment frames. It can also be purchased as part of a three-volume package.

This guidance (Part 3) covers shear walls; assisting structural engineers in the development of shear wall systems and illustrating the choices in their design and construction, specifically:

  • an overview of shear wall design

  • requirements of walls

  • elastic theory of thin-walled sections

  • modelling and analysis

  • monolithic and non-monolithic shear wall construction

  • shear infill panels

Also available to purchase as part of a three-volume package with Stability of buildings Parts 1 and 2: General philosophy and framed bracing, and Part 4: Moment frames.
