Seismic Evaluation of RC Building with Shear Walls of Different Materials

Abstract: hear wall systems are commonly used lateralload resisting systems in buildings. Implementing Shear walls to resist the lateral forces produced during earthquake requires knowledge of its behaviour and its effect on the total building response. Shear walls can be constructed either using reinforced concrete (RC), steel plates or combination of concrete and steel plates called as composite material. Behaviour of these types of shear walls are different and hence the overall behaviour of the same building with different shear walls will be different. This paper presents a comparative study on building responses of a six storey RC bare frame building with RC shear wall, with steel plate shear wall(SPSW) and with composite steel plate shear wal(CSPW) for gravity and seismic forces. A better understanding on the influence of shear wall material on the building behaviour can be helpful in new constructions and retrofitting of existing buildings.
