Abstract: Herein is presented an approximate method of analysis for structures composed of shear walls and frames. The structure is reduced to an equivalent frame and an equivalent wall with appropriate values of EI and appropriate plastic moment capacities. The plastic moment capacities of the beams are reduced to allow for gravity loads on the beams. Second-order Ρ-Δ moments are accounted for by equivalent lateral loads at each storey. These loads are calculated in an iterative procedure. The analysis is checked against a more rigorous analysis.

Subject Headings: Shear walls | Gravity loads | Lateral loads | Frames | Moment (mechanics) | Plastics
