This report proposes a reasoning system for bearing shear wall stresses in the ultimate state by using geometrical data of buildings and shear walls at the initial stage of aseismic structural design study. A neural network is used for reasoning, and elasto-plastic stress analysis is carried out for selected shear wall arrangements, then the analytical results are used as the training data. The reasoning results of the bearing shear wall stresses in arbitrary shear wall arrangements are compared with elasto-plastic analytical results, and show satisfactory agreements.
