Abstract: Shear wall, in building construction, a rigid vertical diaphragm capable of transferring lateral forces from exterior walls, floors, and roofs to the ground foundation in a direction parallel to their planes. Examples are the reinforced-concrete wall or vertical truss. Lateral forces caused by wind, earthquake, and uneven settlement loads, in addition to the weight of structure and occupants; create powerful twisting (torsional) forces. These forces can literally tear (shear) a building apart. Reinforcing a frame by attaching or placing a rigid wall inside it maintains the shape of the frame and prevents rotation at the joints. Structural walls provide an efficient bracing system and offer great potential for lateral load resistance. The properties of these seismic shear walls dominate the response of the buildings, and therefore, it is important to evaluate the seismic response of the walls appropriately. Shear walls are especially important in high-rise buildings subject to lateral wind and seismic forces. It is very necessary to determine effective, efficient and ideal location of shear wall. In this study, a G+10 story building in Zone III is presented with some preliminary investigation which is analyzed by changing various positions of shear wall with different shape like C-shape and L-shape shear wall for determining parameters like axial load and moments in columns and beams. This analysis is done by using standard package STADD-pro. The comparison of these models for different parameters like shear force, Bending moment, Displacement, Storey drift and lateral forces has been presented.
