Abstract: Raft foundation is widely used for high-rise buildings where presence of shear wall is very common. Shear Wall resists a major portion of the lateral load of high-rise buildings. So, presence of shear wall on mat foundation causes significant change in pattern and intensity of loading on mat foundation. The present work involved an investigation of effect of shear wall geometry in different seismic zones with and without the presence of raft foundation. Multi storey building with ten storey is analysed for the storey drift, storey displacement and base shear. The analysis of building is done by response spectrum analysis. The different shapes of shear walls C,L,F,I with same plan area is considered. The effect of shear wall geometry is studied in zone II, zone III, zone IV, zone V. Loads and load combinations selected based on IS 456-2000 and IS 875-1987 code. Three types of soil conditions are considered typeI ,type II, type III. Raft foundation is designed by meshing the slab into equal quadrilaterals. Assigning of area springs to the each quadrilateral. Meshing is done inorder to convert the infinite solution into finite solution. The different shapes of the shear walls is analysed in zone V with the raft foundation in type III. The results are compared with and without the raft foundation ,conclusions are drawn that the best shape of the shear wall suits in different seismic zones.
