An analytical method is proposed to determine the sway of a mixed structure (frame + shear wall) subject to seismic forces. The validity of the analytical method is tested on 3-D buildings of different heights. The sway results obtained by the...
According to Saudi Building Code (SBC) and almost all other seismic codes of the world, Reinforced Concrete (RC) shear wallmoment resisting frame buildings must satisfy the requirements of strength, stiffness and ductility if they have to be...
It is common to design reinforced concrete buildings with shear walls to resist seismic loads. In the present study, an easy to apply analytical method has been proposed to determine the amount of shear walls necessary to make reinforced concrete...
Shear walls are known for their contribution in improving the lateral stiffness and thus controlling the story drift of the Reinforced Concrete (RC) buildings against earthquake loading. Although substantial research is available on shear wall-frame...
A considerable research is available on the seismic response of Reinforced Concrete (RC) shear wall-frame buildings, but the studies on the reliability of such buildings, with the consideration of human error, are limited. In the present study, a...
