Dimensional Limits per UBC. The Uniform Building Code has always set limits on the minimum dimensions of shear walls. This is mainly a result of their desire to limit the deflection of the wall. It also relates to the interaction of the sheathing and framing in narrow walls. The closer the edges come together, the greater the

Abstract—One of the most commonly used lateral load resisting systems in buildings is shear wall system. It is well-established fact that shear walls are quite effective in seismic load resistance of medium-rise to high-rise reinforced concrete buildings. Shear walls have very high in-plane stiffness and strength, which can be

Taiwan Institute of Technology, Taipei, Taiwan, ROC. 2. EBASCO-CTCI Corporation, Taipei, Taiwan, ROC. SUMMARY. Finite element analysis and experimental work were conducted to study the ultimate strength of shear wall with opening under lateral load. The test results indicate that the shear strength contributed by

Shear walls are like vertically-oriented wide beams that carry earthquake loads downwards to the foundation. Advantages of Shear Walls in RC Buildings. Properly designed and detailed buildings with shear walls have shown very good performance in past earthquakes. The overwhelming success of buildings with shear
