The Affectivity of Various Wind Condition and Shear Wall Opening in Multi-Story Building on Displacement by Changing Shear Wall Location and its Configuration
Shear wall system is used as one of the most lateral load resisting systems in mulit-story building. Shear wall is quite effective in resisting wind and seismic load in medium-rise and high-rise building. Shear wall provided high stiffness and strength, which can be used to resist large lateral as well as vertical load, making the performance of the building beneficial in various wind load conditions. This study has been focused on the displacement of the different lateral load resisting system for high-rise buildings under various wind load conditions. In this paper, a study was carried out by changing the locations of shear wall radically to determine the structural configuration of a multistory building accordantly. This study has been focused on the effect of addition of shear wall at different location and configuration in buildings without shear wall as well as with shear wall. Besides that, from the software results, the behavior of the shear wall with and without opening was able to observed by obtaining the lateral displacement when acted by 10kN point load at the top left of the wall. The accuracy of the software was able to verify by comparing the result obtained from ETABS and SAP2000 and it was found that the percentage difference between values obtained from that two software is below 20 percent. The maximum lateral displacement at 40m/s and 50m/s is 1.8 and 2.8 times bigger than maximum lateral displacement at 30m/s respectively. The lateral displacement of the shear wall increases as the opening size increases.
