Abstract:
Presents an ultimate strength method to analyze coupled shear walls. The collapse mechanism is assumed to have plastic hinges at the points of contact of the connecting beams and the shear wall and at the bottom of the latter. The method is applicable to multistory structures comprising different types of simple and coupled shear walls with or without abrupt changes in cross section.
