Seismic Design for Special Plate Shear Wall Based on AISC 341-05 & AISC 360-05

Steel plate shear walls are an innovative lateral load resisting system capable of effectively bracing a building against both wind and earthquake forces. The system consists of vertical steel infill plates one story high and one bay wide connected to the surrounding beams and columns.
