An approach to study the flexural and torsional deformation of multistory shear wall buildings for lateral loading has been presented. The out-of-plane stiffness of the floor side is taken into account by means of connecting beams. The problem is described in terms of three generalized displacement functions of the structure. No restriction is placed on the complexity of the floor plan layout. An example is worked out to show the importance of floor slab stiffness and comparisons are made with the results based on the finite element approach.
