Presentation Outline
• Introduction to Steel Plate Shear Walls
• Background information on building and location
• Design calculations
• ASCE 7-10 Equivalent Lateral Force Procedure
• AISC Code Provisions
• Analysis of structure
• SAP2000 lateral force simulations

Steel Plate Shear Wall Frames
• A SPSW frame has three main components:
VBE
HBE
Steel
Plate
• High plastic energy dissipation
• Enhanced stiffness, strength and ductility
• Cost efficient

Problem Statement
Design a 3-story office building located at 1300 Market Street, San
Francisco, CA 94103. Utilize steel plate shear walls (SPSWs) as the
lateral force resisting system.
• Design the optimal member sizes for the:
• Steel plates
• Horizontal boundary elements (HBEs)
• Vertical boundary elements (VBEs)
• Utilize SAP2000 to simulate and evaluate
the structures response to lateral forces.

AISC Seismic Code Provisions
• Determine preliminary sizes for the
three main components of the Lateral
System
• SPSW
• HBE
• VBE
11
AISC Seismic Code Provisions
• The Strip-model was used to
approximate SPSW response to
lateral forces
• Solving for the angle of inclination, α
•
•
•
3rd : α =41.3°
2nd : α =39.3°
1st : α =38.3°
12
AISC Seismic Code Provisions
• Demand Capacity Ratios (DCR)
• Ratio of forces acting on a member with respect to the maximum strength or
capacity of that member
• Shear Capacity
• Combined compression and flexure check
13
AISC Seismic Code Provisions
• Final member sizes
• 2nd floor steel plate redesigned
• 3rd and 2nd floor HBE redesigned
• Final design
