Shear walls are widely used in concrete structures to resist lateral force originated from wind and earthquake. Currently, shear walls using steel sections as flexural reinforcement at two ends are successfully used in practice, and this kind structure also showed good performance in past severe earthquake. Some provisions are available in the NEHRP (1997) and design recommendations also have been implemented in AIJ (1985).
