AISC DESIGN GUIDE 20
Steel Plate Shear Walls
|Publication Date:||1 January 2006|
Steel plate shear walls (SPW) have been used in a significant number of buildings, beginning decades ago, before the existence of design requirements specifically addressing this structural system. Implementation has accelerated significantly since the recent publication of various design standards, specifications, and other guidelines providing design requirements in both high-seismic applications and wind and low-seismic applications (as will be reviewed in subsequent chapters).
