Title: Design Aspects of Double Skin Profiled Composite Framed Shearwalls in Construction and Service Stages
Author(s): Khandaker M. Anwar Hossain and Howard D. Wright
Publication: Structural Journal
Appears on pages(s): 94-102
Keywords: construction; shearwall; steel sheet; stiffness; strength
Abstract:Composite wall with double skins of profiled steel sheeting and an infill concrete is a novel form of walling system. The development of design guidelines for the use of this form of a walling system as framed shearwalls in buildings is presented. Results of comprehensive experimental and theoretical investigations are used to validate the design equations and in suggesting the values of design parameters. Design equations are simple and can be used safely for design purposes. Design procedures are illustrated with worked-out design examples. It is suggested that the proposed composite-framed shearwall can be a viable shear resisting element in buildings.
