building 10.98 m which is too small compare to length of building 44.16 m in our case, so that wind
case more governing/severe than the earth quake case.
6.2 As per, a relative deflection of 3 to 15 mm (0.12 to 0.6 inch) over a story height of 3 m (10 ft).
For Model A1, B1, C1, D1.
As per table 1 and Graph 1 of Top deflection, top deflection observed for wind combinationDCON6
(1.5 DL + 1.5 WL) for each models A1, B1, C1 and D1. In without shear wall model A1 top
deflection is 360.52 mm which is reduce up to 40% in top deflection due to shear wall at centre of
building plan and side centre shear wall but drastically (suddenly) reduction up to 75% in top
deflection by using corner shear wall. At this stage we observed an effect of position of shear wall on
top deflection of a building.



As per discussion of results we conclude that there is marginal reduction in deflection, by introducing
side centre shear wall, shear wall at centre. But the deflection is reduced drastically by introducing
shear wall at corner along both directions. Width of building is too small compare to length of
building in plan in present work therefore wind case is governing case in our building.


 Study of all the system without infill walls and its effect.
 Study of coupled shear wall.
 Study of different parameters like thickness, height and tapered section for shear wall.
 Study of foundation for various systems
