Past studies proves that steel plate shear walls (SPSW) as efficient lateral load resisting systems. Its high initial stiffness, strength, energy absorption capacity as well as ductility are some of its advantages. SPSWs may be either stiffened or un-stiffened, based on the type of infill plates. Stiffened SPSWs increases the cost of construction. Recent introduction of corrugated plate with various structural features, created great interest among the researchers, to study about the corrugated SPSWs. On this basis, this paper presents the result of the numerical analysis of trapezoidally corrugated SPSWs. The linear buckling analyses are performed to study the effect of web-plate thickness, aspect ratio and opening percentage. The stiffness, strength and ductility performance of numerous trapezoidally corrugated SPSW under monotonic loading are also investigated. Their behaivour under cyclic loading is also examined.
