Abstract

Application of radial basis functions on dual reciprocity BEM for dynamic analysis of pierced shear walls S. Mehraeen and A. Noorzad Abstract Accurate design and analysis of shear walls as an efficient element withstanding against earthquake and dynamic lateral forces in high-rise buildings by finite element programs, necessitate modeling shear walls with many small elements and naturally preparing so much data as an input (especially for pierced shear walls), because if we use FE methods in order to get appropriate accuracy, calculation and determination of the stress distribution around these openings when walls are exposed to dynamic loads, require smaller elements in domain discretization. On the contrary, by considering of this structural member with BEM as another numerical alternative, it is only necessary to discretize boundary as well as other several advantages. In this paper, Dual Reciprocity BEM (DR/BEM) is used for analysis of shear walls (especially pierced she
