An upright component of a seismic force-resisting structure called a shear wall is made to protect against in-plane lateral forces, which are often caused by wind and seismic loads. The design of shear walls is governed by the international residential code and the international building code in many countries. A shear wall may withstand loads that are equal to the wall’s plane. The diaphragm shear is transferred to shear walls and other vertical components of the seismic force-resisting system via collectors, sometimes referred to as drag members. In this study, we have chosen Seismic analysis (zone v) of RCC building (G+5) with shear walls using STAAD. Pro software The multistory building (G+5) is the subject of analysis. The STAAD. Pro, Designing and Analysis software is used to develop the 3D model of Shear wall and Building. Giving it constraints that are based on the acting seismic force and wind loads on buildings rendered the nodes weak, so we added a shear wall to reinforce that nodes. Following the inclusion of the building's shear wall and analysis using STAAD. Pro in standard format. After analyzing the effect & shear wall's position on the building & comparing results with old building design without shear wall, it was determined that the addition & location of shear walls in multistory structures strengthens the structure's weak points and enables it to withstand lateral loads, wind loads, and earthquake loads.
