Effect of Shape of Core Wall in Tall Building

Shajahan Ali, M. Mohshin


The world is becoming faster day by day with the advancement of science and technology. Many type structures are constructed now. Tall building is one of them. The tall building is analysed with various components. They may be shear wall or core wall. Various shape of core wall is used in tall building. The rectangular and square core walls are used mostly. Five different core walls are used to determine the more effective shape of core wall. Dead, live, wind and seismic loads in according with the code of practice, have been applied to observe the variation of bending moment, shear force and side sway respectively along height of building with different core wall. The bending moment, shear force and side sway are compared with respect to the height of building of five Models in tabular form and graphical.
