DESIGN OF MULTISTORY SHEAR WALLS
DESIGN OF MULTISTORY SHEAR WALLSMultistory shear walls are designed using the same procedures as discussed in Section 7.11 for one-story shear walls except that shear and overturning and moments have to be calculated for every floor level. Both shear and overturning moments, as well as axial load on the wall, increase progressively as one proceeds from Level n of a building to the base. The overturning moment at the base can be easily calculated once the story forces are determined as discussed earlier. The overturning moment at the base can be calculated from Eq. (7.100…
