Abstract

The ductility of a structure is an important factor that should be taken under consideration in the design against lateral loads like an earthquake. This paper presents the effect of the shear wall on the ductility of the structure and the effects of the presence of opining in it on the ductility. Eighteen 2D moment-resisting frames (MRFs), with the shear wall (SW) and SW with opening structural models, were created and designed. The pushover analyses using ETABS 19 software were performed on the designed models to calculate the ductility of the structural models. The obtained results show that the shear wall in the models increases the ductility of the structures significantly, while the presence of an opening decreases it slightly. Besides, the increase in the number of storeys increases the ductility of MRF models but decreases the ones with SW. Oppositely; the increase in span length reduced the ductility of MRF models and increases the docility of the models with SW
