Title: Analysis of Coupled Shear Walls
Author(s): Alexander Coull and J. R. Choudhury
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 587-593
Keywords: deflection;earthquake resistant construction;lateral loads;multistory buildings; reinforced concrete;shear walls;stresses;structural analysis;structural design
Abstract:Curves are presented for the rapid evaluation of the stresses and maximum deflections in any system of coupled shear walls subjected to either a triangularly distributed lateral load or a point load at the top. The curves are derived from the continuous connection theory, in which the discrete system of connecting beams is replaced by an equivalent continuous medium.
