Both reference [1~2] method and partitioned design method (GB 50010-2002) were adopted to design complex shear walls, and some factors such as axial compression ratio, reinforcing ratio, section dimension, concrete strength grade and effective flange width were considered, then their limited loading capacity would be compared with each other when axial force was considered as a fixed value. It was found that there were some defects of complex shear wall partitioned design method. And its applied conditions were suggested, which included section restricted condition and limited value of axial compression ratio. When these conditions couldn’t be satisfied, the adjusted reinforcement partitioned design method of reference  was suggested. If the uneconomical problem of partitioned design method could not be accepted, whole section design method of reference [1~2] would be suggested.
