ANALYSIS OF SHEAR WALLS UNDER FLEXURE AND AXIAL LOADS
Analysis of Shear Walls under Flexure Shear walls constitute the lateral load–resisting elements in both masonry and concrete shear wall buildings (referred to as bearing wall systems in design codes), and dual systems and shear wall–frame interactive systems. By their very nature shear walls are subjected to the following concurrent forces: Gravity loads, which cause axial compressive stresses in the wall. Lateral loads, which cause shear stresses in the wall as well as bending moment and overturning mome…
