Review on Steel Plate Shear Wall for Tall Buildings
Jadhav Manoj Babaso, Patil G. R.
For construction activity normally we use materials as concrete and steel to build up tall buildings. In concrete there are different constituents like aggregate; cement; sand; admixtures; water and plasticizers from which we can achieve the characteristic strength according to our structure. We also use various grades of steel like MS; TOR; TMT; depending on the type of structure. We can construct building by using these two main components up to the limit that means the deign limits according specified by the IS 456: 2000 Plain and Reinforced Concrete. But for the high rise structures we cannot go only by using these two components i.e. concrete and steel. We have to choose some different alternatives or different systems to construct the high rising structures therefore we can see system like Steel plate Shear Wall (SPSW) suggested by different scientist that we are going to study in this paper. We are going to study the Performance of Steel Plate Shear Wall during Past Earthquakes events. In this paper we will also study the testing on steel plate and also the different case study of SPSW system.
