Re: Curved Shear Wall

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi, Yi Yang,
By your name, I guess you are a Chinese. If so, give me a reply. I am a Chinese and a structural engineer working in new york for years.
Your question is an interesting one. My thinking is to find the shear center of the curved shear wall. I guess this wall will work with other walls also. so the shear wall is part of the shear resistant system of the building. If it is a low rise building. I have some thing for you.
