Abstract
The objective of this paper is to clarify the difference between two analytical models for plastic design of shear walls and evaluate their potential for hand calculation by comparing calculated load-bearing capacities of different wall configurations with the corresponding ones obtained by finite element analyses. The first analytical model is based on a true plastic lower bound concept, i.e. always fulfilling the conditions of equilibrium. The second model is based on the assumption that the full vertical shear capacity of the wall is utilized, considering that the vertical equilibrium is always fulfilled but disregarding that the horizontal equilibrium of the...
