Frames with Shear Wall

  • Farzad Hejazi
  • Keyhan Karimzadeh


In this chapter, the concrete shear wall system and its effects on building systems is discussed. The first part presents the concept of shear walls and its characteristic. Approximate and virtual work are implemented to determine the displacement of concrete shear wall frame with considering the lateral stiffness of frame as well when subjected to a lateral load. The next section presents the architectural and structural detail of considered 6 story real building and all described calculations and computations processes are applied on this structure.
