Abstract

In this article we have reviewed shear walls as an effective way for resisting lateral loads in tall buildings. Then two most popular types of shear walls, steel and concrete walls, are reviewed and their construction methods are discussed. At the end we have concluded that shear walls are one of the most effective and operational solutions for resisting earthquake and wind forces.
