ST71.40.35.15 Extracting Shear Wall Design Action Effects
This Webnote describes a simple method for extracting the design action effects to be used for the design of shear walls. In order to provide a thorough explanation of the method, four models will be discussed:
Consider the shear wall subjected to three lateral point loads shown opposite. The wall is fixed at the base, and grouped into three levels, each 4m in height.
The wall is idealised as a cantilever beam and the shear forces and bending moments are calculated as shown on the following...
