Large regular frames under initial axial forces may be approximated by a continuum which is identical with Eringen's micropolar continuum. The finite difference method is then applied to the continuum problem.

Many shear walls are supported on beams which span onto columns. The redistribution of loading at the base of such a wall causes axial tension, shear and bending moments in the support beam. This paper develops equations whereby these force actions can be readily estimated.
Shear-wall building structures are often symetric in plan and subjected to loads the result of which coincide with the structure's symmetry plane. To enable a simple, reasonably accurate analysis of these types of structures to be made in engineering offices, the author's continuous connection method for the analysis of simple perforated shear walls is extended to cover complete building structures.
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.

A method is presented for the analysis of the distribution of lateral loads amongst the shear walls of a three-dimensional multi-storey [sic] building subjected to both bending and torsion.

Earthquake resistant multistory reinforced concrete structures incorporate the principles of ductile moment resisting memebers.

The results of a laboratory investigation on the strength of shear walls for high-risse buildings are presented.

This paper presents a study of the behavior and design of ductile shear walls, limiting the study to those walls which behave as flexural members, the ductility of flexural members having been generally proved in tests and in practice in seismic regions. . .This paper is intended as a design aid for structural designers who are considering the use of shear walls in seismic regions.
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.
Fazlur R. Khan, Hal S. Iyengar
The process of practical design optimization of high-rise concrete buildings is discussed from an overall systems point of view.
