Depending on the geometric and loading characteristic of the "Curved" plywood shearwall one thing you want to make sure is that your anchor bolts provide both required shear and uplift capacity.
Shear center for plywood shearwall? We'd like to benefit form the information you have on this subject. Please share your information with the list.

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.
