Publication Abstract: 

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 analytical method and computer agree well. The implementation of the proposed analytical method to shear wall - frame buildings in regions of high seismic risk is emphasized. The determination of which building is earthquake prone and should be strengthened can easily be done by the analytical method proposed.
