Self-weight = 0.20×0.50×1.0×25 = 2.50kN/m
r = 4/4=1.0 (βb = ½)
WUD = 1.40[2.5+2×5× ½] = 10.5kN/m
WUL = 1.60[2×2× ½] = 3.2kN/m
WU = 10.5+3.2 = 13.7kN/m
RU = 13.7×4/2 = 27.4kN (each column has two reactions)
PU = 5×27.4×2×1.1 = 602.8kN (no. of stories n = 5 and 1.10 for column weight)

Wu=13.70kN/m

Example #2:
For the shown short-braced axially loaded (tied) square column,
it is required to:
1. Calculate Pu,max.
2. Check vertical reinforcement.
3. Check stirrups.

fy = 400MPa
300mm Str.φ10-200mm fcu = 25MPa
As = 4Φ25
300mm = 1964mm2
Pu,max:
Pu,max = 0.35Acfcu+ 0.67As fy = 0.35×300×300×25+ 0.67×1964×400

where µ is the reinforcement ratio.
Here, µ is greater than µmin and less than µmax, Okay.

Stirrups:
φmin = 0.25Φmax = 0.25×25 = 6.25mm
But not less than 8mm
φmin = 8mm which is less than 10mm (given), Okay.

## Sv,max = 15Φ = 15×25 = 375mm

But not greater than 200mm
Sv,max = 200mm which is equal to 200mm (given), Okay.

treq. = 555mm and tact. = 600mm (nearest to 50mm). Try 300×600mm
As = 0.01×300×600 = 1800mm2 (use 4φ16+4φ18)

Axially loaded means no eccentricity but, however, minimum eccentricity emin
to be considered. Thus, Mu,min = Pu × emin.

## Estimating Column Size:

As a first trial, use the following equation to estimate the column size.

## 𝑃𝑢 = 0.35𝐴𝑐 𝑓𝑐𝑢 + 0.67𝐴𝑠 𝑓𝑦

𝐴𝑠
𝑃𝑢 = 𝐴𝑐 (0.35𝑓𝑐𝑢 + 0.67 𝑓𝑦 )
𝐴𝑐
𝑃𝑢 = 𝐴𝑐 (0.35𝑓𝑐𝑢 + 0.67𝜇𝑓𝑦 )

Which gives:

## Assuming µ, this equation underestimates Ac.

Is it Braced or UnBraced?
A building can be considered Braced in one direction if:
1. It is provided with structural walls (shear walls and core-walls) extended to the full
height of the building and connected to the foundation and the following equations are
met:
For buildings that consist of 4 floors or more:

𝑁
𝛼 = 𝐻𝑏 � < 0.60
∑ 𝐸𝐼
For buildings that consist of less than 4 floors:

𝑁
𝛼 = 𝐻𝑏 � < 0.20 + 0.10𝑛
∑ 𝐸𝐼
Hb = Total height of building above the foundation level
N = Total unfactored (working) loads carried by all vertical elements
ΣEI = Summation of the flexural rigidities of the walls sharing in supporting the
building
n = Number of building floors

## Examples #6 and #7:

Exercise #1:
A structural plan for a 15 story residential building is shown below. The following
data are given:
Thickness of flat plate of all floors = 350mm
The floor cover = 1.50kN/m2
The equivalent wall loads = 3.50kN/m2
The height of the ground floor = 5m
Typical floor height = 3m
Assume Ec = 25000N/mm2
It is required to check the bracing condition of the building in both directions.

CHAPTER 8
WALLS AND SHEAR WALLS

• Moments, and
• Axial forces.

## A shear wall is a structural wall.

Major factors that affect the design of structural walls include the following:
a) The structural function of the wall relative to the rest of the structure
i. The wall is supported and braced by the rest of the structure
ii. The wall supports and braces the rest of the structure.
b) The types of loads the wall resists.
c) The location and amount of reinforcement.

##  Walls versus Columns:

ℎ𝑤
• The slenderness of a wall, , is generally > for columns.

• The reinforcement ratio of a wall, 𝜇 , is generally < those for columns

 Bearing Walls:

## Wall proportioned to resist combinations of:

• Laterally supported and braced by the rest of the structure. That is, wall is
laterally supported and restrained against deflection along two opposite sides,
usually the top and bottom supports.

 Shear Walls:
 Resists primarily lateral loads (Wind or Earthquake Loads) acting parallel to the
plane of the wall in addition to the gravity loads (DL, LL, etc…) from the floors
and roof adjacent to the wall. Shear walls resists lateral loads (lateral shears) and
moments about the strong-axis of the wall.
 Often provide lateral bracing for the rest of the structure.

##  Non Bearing Walls:

 Do not support gravity in-plane loads other than their own weight.
 Resists shears and moments due to pressure or loads acting on one or two (both)
sides of the wall. That is, they are used to resist the horizontal soil pressure where
the surface of the ground is higher on one side of the wall than on the other.

## 8.3 SHEAR WALLS

 Short Walls:
• One- or two-story shear walls with(𝐡𝐰 ⁄𝐥𝐰 ) ≤ 𝟐. 𝟎.
• The strength and behavior generally are dominated by shear action.
 Slender or Flexural Walls:
• If the wall is more than three or four stories in height and (𝐡𝐰 ⁄𝐥𝐰 ) ≥ 𝟑. 𝟎, lateral
loads are resisted mainly by flexural action of the vertical cantilever wall rather
than shear action.
 Shear Walls exhibit a combination of Shear and Flexural Behavior:
• Shear walls with 𝟐. 𝟎 < (𝐡𝐰 ⁄𝐥𝐰 ) < 3.0 exhibit a combination of shear and
flexural behavior.

resisted in part by WALL and in part by the FRAME.

##  Very Tall Concrete Buildings:

• Structural systems for very tall concrete buildings will be discussed later.

## 8.5 COUPLED SHEAR WALLS

Two or more shear walls in the same plane (or two wall assemblies) are sometimes connected
at floor levels by coupling beams, so that the walls act as a unit when resisting lateral loads.

## 8.6 DISTRIBUTION OF WALLS IN A BUILDING FLOOR PLAN

CM = Center of Mass (geometric centroid of the floor plate).
CR = Center of lateral resistance (rigidity) provided by the (isolated) shear walls.

L2/2

CM
Vx
ey CR

ex

L1/2

Vy

Because lateral loads are assumed to act through the center of mass (CM), any
eccentricity between the CM and CR will result in the generation of torsional moments. A
central-core wall system commonly is used to minimize eccentricity between the CM and
CR.
When a building structure is subjected to large lateral displacements due to
earthquake ground motions, the stiffnesses of the lateral-load resisting members are likely to
change in a non-uniform fashion. As a result, the CR is likely to be relocated and the
eccentricity between the CM and CR may increase. To account for this, Building Codes
specify a minimum eccentricity in the two principal directions that must be added to any
calculated eccentricity.
59
Dr. Mohamed E. El-Zoughiby, 2015

## For structures where substantial torsional moments may be generated, a wide

distribution of shear walls around the perimeter of the floor plan would be most efficient for
resisting that torsion.
If lateral displacements are to be calculated, the moment of inertia values should be
reduced by 30% to correspond to those recommended in the Code. Thus,
Walls un-cracked: 0.70 Ig
Walls cracked: 0.35 Ig
If there is an eccentricity between the CM and CR or a minimum eccentricity is
specified by a design code, then the effects of torsion must be considered.
Torsion:
𝐌𝐓𝐱 = 𝐕𝐱 × 𝐞𝐲
𝐌𝐓𝐲 = 𝐕𝐲 × 𝐞𝐱
Required Size of Wall:
In choosing a structural wall section for a given building, the wall must
(a) Have enough strength to resist the factored moments, shears, and axial loads.
(b) Have enough stiffness to limit the lateral deflections.

## 8.7 STORY DRIFT

The Code limits the maximum story drift under unfactored (service) loads to less than 1/500
of the story height.

## 8.8 REINFORCEMENT IN SHEAR WALLS

Distributed and Concentrated Reinforcement
The reinforcement in a shear wall is generally made up of:
(a) Distributed horizontal and vertical reinforcement spread uniformly over the
length between the boundary elements and over the height of the wall.

## Example No. 11:

1. For the shown structural wall (a planar shear wall), it is required to:
• Check the adequacy of the shown structural (shear) wall for the combined gravity and
lateral loads applied to the wall. A uniform distribution of vertical and horizontal
reinforcement is used in two layers.

PDL=150kN
Given:
110kN PLL = 0.50PDL
U = 1.6WL+0.90DL
3.0m

FWL=30kN hz.
5.50m 4.0m Φ12-200mm EF

h = 0.25m

The gravity loads applied at each floor level, as shown above, are due to dead load. The
live loads are not shown but are assumed to be equal to 0.50 of the dead loads. The
lateral wind loads are based on service-level (unfactored) wind forces.

## Make an initial check of wall reinforcement:

Horizontal Reinforcement

acceptable unless a larger amount is required to satisfy shear requirements.
𝟏𝟓 × 𝟏𝟔
𝐒𝟐,𝐦𝐚𝐱 = the smallest of � � = 𝟐𝟎𝟎mm

Thus, the provided spacing S2 for the horizontal reinforcement is Okay.

64
Dr. Mohamed E. El-Zoughiby, 2015

Vertical Reinforcement
Although it is good practice to use larger vertical bars at the
edges of the wall, say Φ20 or Φ22 bars, we will calculate 𝛍𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐭
assuming only Φ16 bars are used.

𝛑(𝟏𝟔)𝟐

The minimum given by the Egyptian Code is 0.50% which is less than what is
provided. The spacing limit for the vertical reinforcement is:
𝐒𝟏,𝐦𝐚𝐱 ≤ 𝟐𝟓𝟎mm
Thus, the provided spacing S1 (250mm) of the vertical reinforcement is Okay.

Because As provided is larger than As required by Mu and Nu (from the Interaction
Diagram), the wall has adequate flexural strength.

One can, also, check the adequacy (flexural strength) of the wall as follows:

From the Interaction Diagram, we get

𝑓𝑐𝑢 𝑏𝑡 2
Because the value of 𝑀𝑢 (from I.D.) = 12100 kN-m is larger than (due to loads) = 7040 kN-m,
the wall has adequate flexural strength.
