Title: Simplified method for structural analysis of wall-frame systems
Author(s): Manuel L. Gutierrez de Velasco R.
Appears on pages(s): 36-48
Keywords: Wall-frame structures, Structural analysis, Matrix methods, Flexibilities, Stiffness, Simplified matrix method, Concrete walls, Wang Method, Khan and Sbarounis Method, Wilbur Equations
Abstract:It is proposed an approximate solution procedure for distribution of horizontal loads in structural systems made up of shear walls and frames, using a simplified stiffness matrix, which can be easily implemented in a spreadsheet of a personal computer. The accuracy of the proposal is verified by comparing its results with those obtained from other methods. Some examples of application are also presented.
