Introduction
Steel plate shear wall systems have been used in recent years in highly seismic areas to
resist lateral loads. Figure 1 shows two basic types of steel shear walls; unstiffened and stiffened
with or without openings. Unstiffened shear walls have been very popular in North American
applications while in Japan almost all steel shear walls used in recent years have been stiffened.
