Study on Shearwalls With and Without Openings

Authors(2) :-Harikapriya N, Rambabu CH

Finite Element Modeling now a day is an essential approach in analysis and simulating civil engineering problem numerically. In this thesis Parametric study on shearwalls to apply the finite element modeling in analyzing and exploring the behavior of shear wall with & without opening under seismic load actions and wind load actions.

This study is carried out on G+20 story frame-shear wall buildings, using linear elastic analysis with the help of finite element software, ETABS under earthquake loads in equivalent static analysis. The results reveal that stiffness as well as seismic responses of structures is affected by the size of the openings as well as their locations in shear wall. It is also explored that top lateral drift of the system can also be reduced thickening the element in the model around the opening of shear wall
