Shear wall effect on material consumption based on seismic design

Mohammad Ahmadi, Suhaimi Abu Bakar

Abstract

The question of material consumption is one of the most important issues in seismic design of multi-story frames. The paper illustrates how material consumption can be reduced by utilizing shear wall according to the Performance-Based Seismic Design (PBSD). For this purpose, different story frames with and without shear walls are designed In addition, a simple algorithm is proposed for monitoring global response of the system. The results explicitly show that the material consumption in Dual System is lower when compared to the Frame System.
