Shear walls are the structural elements of the horizontal force resisting system. Shear walls have high influence stiffness and strength and provided to resist gravity load as well as lateral load caused by seismic and wind. So many literatures are available to analyze and design of shear wall. However the optimum location and its effects in high rise RC buildings is not much discussed in any literatures. In this project the main aim is to find the effective, efficient and optimum location of the shear walls in high rise irregular RC building. In this present study the optimum location of shear wall has been investigated with the help of three different Model 1 is bare frame structural system and other two models are dual type structural system with central core wall and corner shear wall. An earthquake load is calculated as per IS 1893(PART-1)-2002 and applied to (G+15) storey R.C building in zone-2 and zone-5. Based on the conventional wide column analogy, two different three-dimensional shear wall models. These approximate models are verified in comparison to not only the results available in the literature but also the ones obtained by using models containing shell elements. With the help of these new models three different groups of shear wall-frame structures such as L-shape, U-shape, rectangular shape with same floor plans and same heights are analyzed. The structure is analysed and design under static and dynamic loading conditions. The results of these computations are observed to be in good agreement with those obtained by detailed models containing shell elements.
