Title: Concrete Shear Walls Combined With Rigid Frames in Multistory Buildings Subject to Lateral Loads
Author(s): Bernhard Cardan
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 299-316
Abstract:In many multistory concrete buildings where shear walls are used, the lateral loads are resisted partially by the walls and partially by a system of risid frames. If a few simple assumptions are made with regard to the properties of the building, it is possible to express the angle deflection of the wall at all points with a second degree differential equation, taking Into account the effect of bending and shear. For a number of common loading conditions this equation is solved, and formulas for all moments and shears in walls and frames given, ready for immediate and practical use. First, the assumption is made that the shear walls are fixed at their bases; but it is later shown how elastic sup- ports or hinged bases can be considered.
