## Abstract

Shear wall systems are one of the most commonly used lateral load resisting systems in high-rise buildings. Shear walls have very high in plane stiffness and strength, which can be used to simultaneously resist large horizontal loads and support gravity loads, making them quite advantageous in many structural engineering applications. There are lots of literatures available to design and analyze the shear wall. However, the decision about the location of shear wall in multistory building is not much discussed in any literatures. In this paper, therefore, main focus is to determine the solution for shear wall location in multistory building. A RCC building of six story placed in Hyderabad subjected to earthquake loading in zone-II is considered. An earthquake load is calculated by seismic coefficient method using IS 1893 (PART-1):2002. A study has been carried out to determine the strength of RC shear wall of a multistoried building by changing shear wall location. Three different cases of shear wall position for a 6 storey building have been analyzed. Incorporation of shear wall has become inevitable in multi-store building to resist lateral forces.**Keywords**: A Study on Construction, RC Shear Walls, Multi-Storied Residential Building
