Abstract:   (1749 Views)
Among the different lateral force resisting systems, shear walls are of appropriate stiffness and hence are extensively employed in the design of high-rise structures. The architectural concerns regarding the safety of these structures have further widened the application of coupled shear walls. The present study investigated the optimal dimensional design of coupled shear walls based on the improved Big Bang-Big Crunch algorithm. This optimization method achieves unique solutions in a short period according to the defined objective function, design variables, and constraints. Moreover, the results of the present study indicated that the dimensions of the coupling beam in the shear wall significantly affect the wall behavior by maximizing its efficiency which implies on its practical application by considering the wall in the flexural model.
