Abstract

In the present work, the static analysis of nonplanar coupled shear walls with any number of stiffening beams has been considered. The properties of the connecting beams and the cross-sectional area of the piers are also assumed to be varying stepwise in the vertical direction. The analysis is based on the Continuous Connection Method (CCM), in conjunction with Vlasov’s theory of thin-walled beams. A computer program has been prepared and using this computer program an asymmetrical example has been solved and compared with the solutions found by the frame method and a perfect match has been observed.
