Beam in region of shear wall

Beam in region of shear wall

Beam in region of shear wall

Do we need to give continute to the alignment of flexural member (beam) in the region of Shear wall?
While analysing in ETABS, I found all beams safe except in the shear wall region of the building. What may be the solution?

Delete the beam at shear wall region..

Better to look worked examples and tutorials ..

RE: Beam in region of shear wall

It's quite possible that the beams near the shear walls are acting as tie-beams between lateral elements or collectors/drag struts. You need to take those effects into account in your design, or detail out the potential for that load transfer if possible.

RE: Beam in region of shear wall

Perhaps your beams are moment connected to your shear walls and, as a result, acting like outrigger beams in a way that was not your intent?

RE: Beam in region of shear wall

You have to figure out WHY the beams are failing. What type of loading (axial, shear, strong axis bending, weak axis bending) is causing them to fail? And, where it that loading coming from?
