Abstract: In Recent Years Researchers Have Shown High Interest In Application Of Steel Plate Shear Walls For Construction Of Commercial And Residential Buildings Due To Its Better Seismic Behavioral Properties. Due To Certain Architectural Requirements It Becomes Imperative To Induce Openings Which Compromise With The Load Resisting Behavior Of Building Structures. This Research Investigates The Effect Of Opening On Spsw Using Techniques Of Fea (Finite Element Analysis). The Opening Types Used In Analysis Are Circular And Rectangular Shape. The Cad Model Is Developed In Design Modeler And Analysis Is Conducted In Static Structural Platform Of Ansys Workbench. The Stresses, Deformation And Buckling Loads Are Determined From Simulation.
