Abstract:
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.
