Abstract: : In this paper, the optimum or suitable location of shear wall in a high rise irregular shaped building is determined. The criteria of choosing suitable location are well mentioned with suitable examples. We have tested several models in dynamic analysis with the help of ETABS ver. 16. Both Time History and Response Spectrum Methods are performed in the analysis. The paper clearly specifies the causes of torsion in a high rise building as well as it also specifies the ways in which we can control the torsion and storey displacement with the help of shear wall in the high rise buildings.
