Abstract: Earthquake is an unexpected and expensive disaster for both livelihood and economy. In the modern day construction, there has been a lot of importance to make the structure resistant against lateral loads for multi storied building. Shear walls are an option of lateral load resisting system. The Concept of designing shear wall is to provide building structure with sufficient strength and deformation capacity to sustain the demands imposed by lateral loads with adequate margin of safety. The study focuses on effect of shear wall on R.C. building at different heights. For this purpose five models of different heights 15m, 30m, 45m, 60m and 75m and with different aspect ratios of 1.33, 0.66, 0.44, 0.33 and 0.26 respectively have been considered. All the models were designed for seismic zone V. For analysis purpose response spectrum method of analysis is considered as per IS: 1893-2002. The comparative study has been done for base shear, storey displacement, storey drift and storey stiffness. Utilization of shear walls when placed at corners of the building of low aspect ratio in high rise buildings is more effective compared to the low rise buildings of higher aspect ratio, as it gives the larger base shear and lesser displacement. The storey stiffness and storey drift is greatly improved when shear wall is placed at corners of the building.
