Abstract: During earthquakes large amount of buildings are getting collapsed due to the cause of lateral forces and increasing of load carrying capacity in structural element and it’s caused by winds, earthquake, and uneven settlement of loads. Least damage and wellbeing healthy level of a structure is the necessary requirement of tall buildings. For reducing the effect of damage on all tall structures, it may consist of base isolation techniques &shear walls etc. For enhancing the structural performance and to limit the damage of a building shear walls are used. On tall buildings to prevent earthquake loads Reinforced Concrete walls used as supporting elements. Reinforced Concrete structures are mainly implemented in engineering practices in different situations and various applications. Many researchers addressing on performance of a shear walls with boundary conditions based on different types of reinforcement alignment. This paper deals with the Load Vs deflection curve, crack pattern, mode of failure of shear wall without boundary elements and three specimens of 200mm thick are casted with different reinforcement alignment types are examined and analysis of shear walls by using STAAD Pro, comparing the results of both experimental and analyze the shear walls to further crack deflections patterns.
Keywords: Reinforced Concrete Walls, Boundary Elements, Reinforcement Types, STAAD Pro.
