Title: Frames and Frame-Shear Wall Systems
Author(s): Arnaldo T. Derecho
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 13-38
Keywords: beams (supports); columns (supports); concrete slabs; deflection; ductility; earthquake resistant structures; frames; high rise buildings; infilled frames; loads (forces); multistory buildings; reinforced concrete; shear properties; shear walls; stiffness
Abstract: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.
