Designers of modern low-rise and mid-rise multi-family buildings often face challenges due to fewer opportunities for shear walls at exterior wall lines (e.g., more glass and larger openings), increased building heights, and multi-story shear wall effects. While corridor-only shear walls are becoming more popular to address the lack of adequate exterior shear walls, methods of analysis for open-front structures are also evolving to reflect more complex building geometries. The goal of this presentation is to provide guidance on how to analyze an open-front or corridor-only shear wall diaphragm, and help engineers better understand flexibility issues associated with these types of structures.
The techniques and examples covered in this presentation are intended to demonstrate one method of analysis. It is anticipated that this information will serve as guidance for designers to consider and refine their own methods and techniques.
