To add a shear wall

To add a shear wall along one side of the elevators, do the following.

For the purpose of this tutorial, you will only add a single shear wall. In a typical building, other shear walls would be present.
  1. In the Building Planner mode, select the Frame | Shear Wall page.
  2. In the Shear Wall Details dialog, click Edit.
  3. Click on column C31 and then on C32.
    The Define Shear Wall dialog opens.
  4. Click OK. For this tutorial, use the default thickness. The shear wall is added on both levels using this plan by default.
You have now finished all the necessary modifications to this example for this tutorial. The next sections cover the design and detailing of structural elements using RCDC.
