Abstract: The finite difference method is used in the solution of torsional problems of tall core wall structures with nonuniform sections. The formulation is very flexible and versatile, and can deal with various nonuniform sections and different loading conditions. The simple mathematical operations are suitable for both preliminary design and final design with hand calculation or any mini-computer. Numerical example is presented and compared with results obtained by other researchers.
