Soil Structure Interaction (SSI) is an interdisciplinary field of endeavor. It lies at the intersection of soil and structural mechanics, soil and structural dynamics, earthquake engineering, geophysics and Geo mechanics, material science. Soil flexibility has to be considered in the analysis of massive structures to avoid failure and ensure safe service. This study focuses on a review of the influence of soil-structure interaction phenomena and its importance to various recipient roles in design and planning consideration of shear wall structures. It is a well-established fact that the soil-structure interaction effect considerably influences the design of multi-storey buildings subjected to seismic loads. The shear walls are often provided in such buildings to increase the lateral stability and to resist seismic lateral loads. Conventional analyses of the buildings is done by taking the base of the structure to be fixed but in the real life the scenario will be different as compared to a fixed end condition because the soil beneath the foundation will vary the earthquake forces and thus varying the lateral forces acting on the structure. The effect of shear walls which when placed at different locations and different shapes is also the important part. The effect of shear walls and also the soil structure interaction influences the behavior of multi-storied buildings subjected to seismic forces.
