Abstract

A comprehensive review of the state of the art in the design of earthquake resisting ductile structural walls is presented. The material has been compiled from the technical literature, the deliberations within the New Zealand National Society for Earthquake Engineering and research efforts at the University of Canterbury. The paper attempts a classification of structural types and elaborates on the hierarchy in energy dissipation. After a review of available analysis procedures, including modelling assumptions, a detailed description of capacity design procedures for both cantilever and coupled shear wall structures is given. The primary purpose of capacity design is to evaluate the critical design actions which can be used in the proportioning and reinforcing of wall actions which can be used in the proportioning and reinforcing of wall sections. An approach to the estimation of structural deformation is suggested. To satisfy the ductility demands imposed by the largest expected earthquake, detailed design and detailing recommendations are given and the application of some of these is presented in an appendix.
