The Effect of L-shaped Shear Wall Location on Lateral Displacemet In Symmetric Medium-Rise Building

Leonardus Setia Budi Wibowo, Rahma Rismasari


The objective of this study was to compare seismic analysis of RC special moment resisting frame with shear wall (Dual System) in the symmetric medium-rise building. Four different configurations of the frame with  L-shaped shear walls has been analyzed using ETABS 9.5 software. The dual system structure showed significant reduction of 69% to 85% in lateral displacement. Based on the results, the effective placement of shear walls in building is on the corner of the building.
