RE: Coupled Shear Walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Thanks Michael.

 

An associate sent me pages 637 through 672 of the Pauley and Priestley text.  I don’t know what edition, but the references are dated no later than the mid ‘70s.

 

The text has considerable discussion of the nature of the problem of design of coupled shear walls, with focus on the spandrels, but there seems to be nothing on how to determine the design forces, moments and shears.  The text refers to an analysis method ‘called laminar analysis’ by Rosman in an ACI Journal of June 1964, but I have not been able to find the article in the ACI searchable data base.  Am I missing something in the Pauley and Priestley text?

Paulay and Priestley’s book go heavily into the subject. Maybe even more than you really would ever want to know.

There aren’t too many good references about this subject. SEAOC SDM has an example for coupled shear walls that I have seen and liked. A couple of years ago SEAOSC did a mini seminar and there was a good presentation on coupled shear wall by Martin Johnson. You may want to get the proceedings on that also.

What is a good reference for understanding the analysis of a coupled shear wall?
