Besides, food and clothing, shelter is a basic human need. India has been successful in meeting the food and clothing requirements of its vast population; however the problem of providing shelter of all is defying solutions. While there has been an impressive growth in the total housing stock from 65 million in 1947 to 187.05 million in 2001, a large gap still exists between the demand and supply of housing units. The Working Group on Housing for the 9th five-year plan estimated the housing shortage in 2001 at 19.4 million units- 12.76 million in rural area and 6.64 million in urban area. The shortage of housing is acutely felt in urban areas more so in the 35 Indian cities, which according to the2001 census have a population of more than a million. Hence in order to overcome this problem construction process should be quick, tall and effective to accommodate huge population in a given area. So we have chosen this topic of BEHAVIOUR OF SHEARWALL IN HIGH RISE RESIDENTIAL BUILDING USING ETABS. This type of shear wall construction helps to build tall structure of about 18 floors within no time. Hence the construction process will become much quicker and efficient. Constructions made of shear walls are high in strength ,they majorly resist the seismic force, wind forces and even can be build on soils of weak bases by adopting various ground improvement techniques. In the present analysis a building with a height of 50 meters is analyzed in ZONE-2 & ZONE-5 with three different soils. Displacement, shears, moments is compared with different zones & soils in both Static & Dynamic analysis. We are verifying and designing this structure using Extended Three Dimension Analysis of Buildings (ETABS) 2013software.
