High Rise Building Structure, Shear Walls


High rise buildings are becoming need of today‘s situation with the population increasing day by day. A trend to high rise building is being seen in the developing cities of India to meet the housing demand. The buildings and infrastructures are necessary for the development and day-to-day activities of human beings. The loss of lives observed during earthquakes is directly related to the number of damaged and collapsed buildings during the event. The buildings become more and more susceptible to the earthquake loads with increase in height. Earthquake load can develop high stresses, produce sway movement or even may cause vibration in the structure. Thus, it is very much important for the structure to have enough strength against vertical loads collectively with satisfactory stiffness to resist earthquake load. Shear walls are among the most common lateral load resisting systems. The usefulness of the shear walls in the structural planning of the multistory buildings has long been recognized. But there are many factors such as placement of shear walls, its length, its thickness, aspect ratio, plan of the building which affects the response of the building towards lateral loads. In the present study an attempt is made to study the effect of the position of shear walls on bending moment, shear force, axial force and torsional force. Also the effect on storey drift, storey displacement and base shear is studied by changing the shear wall position. The complete study is carried out for zone II as per IS 1893 (part 1):2002, considering primary loads (dead, live and seismic loads) and their combinations with proper load factor using Staad-Pro.
