Abstract

The design of shear and core walls is reviewed. This is based on available methods of analysis, covering their elastic, elasto-plastic and dynamic behaviour. The various limit states of design are put forward, and the importance of serviceability criteria (e.g. the response of the occupants of the building to motion) are described. The Report concentrates on the design of coupled shear and core walls, but it also examines structural variations such as panels and infills. A suggested design procedure is described, and typical design calculations are presented.
