Abstract: The paper elaborates the study of effects of location of shear wall in an irregular shaped building. The main concerned issue is the generation of torsion in a building which is irregular in plan. The paper points out the causes, effects and solution of the torsional forces in an irregular shaped building. The study is done on an ‘L’ shaped building which G+10 storied and is located in Seismic Zone IV exhibiting medium soil conditions and a damping of 5%. The modelling and analysis will be performed by using CSI ETABS ver.16. Dynamic Analysis is conducted in order to study the topic. The paper will finally point out the reasons for choosing a particular test model which exhibits lowest torsion and storey displacement.
