STUDY OFDUCTILITY OF BUILDING WITH STEEL AND CONCRETESHEAR WALL
A number of earthquake occurred in and around the India over the past century. Some of them occurred in dense populated area thus causes the great damage. Behaviour of RC building during the earthquake depend upon the number of factors like architectural features, structural design, location of building, soil condition etc. Many of the RC building constructed with bottom storey left open for the purpose of parking, such type of building subjected to more damaged during the earthquake. Such type of buildings can be strengthening by providing the vertical plate like wall called as a shear wall. Properly designed and detailed shear wall have a very good performance during the earthquake. However it is interesting to know shear wall constructed with different materials behaves differently. In this paper author demonstrate the behavior of concrete and steel shear wall by using the software STAAD-Pro 2006 and it was observed that though the weigh of shear wall kept constant in both the cases ductility of steel shear wall building is more than the concrete shear wall building.
