Model for dynamic analysis of wood frame shear walls

A discrete three-degree-of-freedom model of a wood frame shear wall has been developed that is suitable for design-type analyses. The model captures the salient features of the wall response, is amenable to exact closed-form solution, and has the flexibility to account for variations in wall geometr...
