Shear Wall, Lateral Loading, Displacement & Stiffness


Shear wall is a supporting structural element, which is used in high rise building. Mostly shear wall design to bear lateral loading which is due to wind load or seismic load by environmental condition such as seismic load wind load and many others. Shear wall provide enough strength and stiffness to whole lateral displacement. In other word we can say that, shear wall system is one of the most commonly used lateral load system. Shear wall is a vertical member which is used to bear horizontal loading or lateral loading. In this paper, we mainly focused on the basic fundamental of shear wall and its design, which is discussed in to the various post works. This research for the improving the strength and stiffness performance of the shear wall and find out the best position to apply shear wall and shear wall design in high rise building. We know that shear wall play an important role as a resistor for lateral loading on high rise building. The effect of shear walls, when it is placed at different location and different shape is also the important part of this literature paper. Shear wall having capacity to improve the strength and stiffness under lateral loading.
