This paper briefly reviews some aspects involved in the planning and analysis of frames and frame-shearwall systems, with particular reference to the lateral-load-resisting function. The basic structural systems commonly used in the high-rise building are examined and a discussion of frame-shearwall behavior as well as some simplifying assumptions used in their analysis is presented. Areas requiring further study are indicated.

The results of a laboratory investigation on the strength of shear walls for high-risse buildings are presented.
Design formulas are presented for the direct evaluation of the axial forces in the connecting beams and the shear forces in the walls of a coupled shear wall system.
Editors: Mark Fintel and James G. MacGregor
Presents selected papers dealing with the structural analysis and design of tall reinforced concrete buildings. Subjects covered include: frame-shear wall systems; framed tube structures, optimization, load distribution analysis, and symmetric shear wall analysis. Four papers dealing with various aspects of the problems of constructing tall buildings in sesmic areas are also included.
This paper presents a condensed state-of-the-art report on the philosophy underlying the design for earthquake resistance of multistory structures in reinforced concrete.
