Shear walls are critical building elements to resist in-plane loads and are, for masonry, the seismic-force-resisting system. This session of the Strength Design of Masonry series reviews strength design of shear walls, along with both seismic detailing requirements and minimum/maximum detailing requirements for such walls.
- Introduce masonry shear walls and applied loads on these critical elements
- Discuss seismic detailing requirements for masonry shear walls
- Review the strength design provisions for masonry shear walls for combined axial load and bending and for shear
- Overview maximum and minimum reinforcement limits and detailing of shear walls
