Investigation Effect of Type, Property and Dimension of Stiffener Perforated Steel Shear Wall


Farhad Dehghan and Yousef Zandi

Steel plate shear wall (SPSW) according extra ductility and high strength and lateral stiffness and improved behavior in plastic stage recognized as a good lateral system for building structure, particularly as it interests with earthquake resistant design. Improvise of opening is one advantage of this system. The researchers on perforated steel plate shear wall have shown that the shear strength and stiffness of an un-stiffened steel shear wall decrease due to perforation of the infill plate. So stiffener leads to increasing stability of structural system of buckling and strength, lateral stiffness. To this research still plate shear wall with opening that can be of different material such as rebar, steel plate also effect of increase and decrease of steel plate section area and effect of its dimension studied. Analysis result was observed that applying steel plate with similar area, leads to more ultimate strength. In additionally ultimate strength increase when area increased. With comparing of result of stiffeners dimension due maximum ultimate shear strength. Finally suggest optimum aspect ratio (b/t).
