Design of Multistoried R.C.C. Buildings with and without Shear Walls

By M. S. Aainawala and Dr. P. S. Pajgade


From the past records of earthquake, there is increase in the demand of earthquake resisting building which can be fulfilled by providing the shear wall systems in the buildings. Static Analysis is performed for regular buildings up to 90m height in zone II and III, Dynamic Analysis should be performed for regular buildings in zone IV and V above 40 m. Reinforced cement concrete (RCC) framed structures combined with shear walls has been widely used to resist lateral forces during earthquakes in tall buildings. Shear walls are generally provided for full height of the frame. Shear wall systems are one of the most commonly used lateral-load resisting systems in high-rise buildings. Shear walls have very high in-plane stiffness and strength, which can be used to simultaneously resist large horizontal loads and support gravity loads, making them quite advantageous in many structural engineering applications. An earthquake load is applied to a building for G+12, G+25, G+38 located in zone II, zone III, zone IV and zone V for different cases of shear wall position. An analysis is performed using ETAB v 9.0.7 software. Lateral displacement and story drift are calculated in all the cases. It was observed that Multistoried R.C.C. Buildings with shear wall is economical as compared to without shear wall
