The problem of shear wall-frame interaction is investigated by a method which emphasizes the physical interrelarionships between the components and minmizes the mathematical complexity. The problem is reduced to that of a cantilever beam supported by concentrated elastic reactions. Expressions are derived to set up a simultaneous uniequation solution for deflections at each story. The simplifications and assumptions in the analysis are discussed and procedures for extending the scope of the solution to more complex problems are given. Several examples are considered and compared to solutions by other methods
