Abstract: The following report explores about concept of shear wall, bare frame and infilled structure. In past the high rise buildings structures offer some major advantages but also pose serious challenges to designers in seismic and wind loading and structure economically not feasible. Structural engineer added some other elements like braces, shear wall, dampers, and isolators to improve the performance of the structure, but structure still become uneconomically and it is also complex to design. Adding some other element is not sufficient solution to make structure economical. Now, to avoid this problem in this report talk about non structural element such as masonry wall, which are already exist elements in a structure. Structural engineer accepted that if the properties of infill wall or masonry wall considered in structural design it will helps to enhance the strength and stiffness of the structure. But in India infill wall is not considered as a structural element so here lot of research and development required regarding with consideration of infill wall in all point of view. In this report discussed about the effect of curtailment of shear wall in bare frame and infilled frame for this lot of literature survey are included regarding with this project. Some models are analysed in SADD Pro V8i such as Bare Frame, Infilled Frame, Bare Frame with shear wall, Infilled Frame with shear wall, and Bare Frame with curtailed shear wall and infilled with curtailed shear wall and get the result in terms of storey drift, bending moment, shear force and axial force. From this result understand the behavior of the structure in different condition and concluded that infilled frame structure are superior to the bare frame structure. Infill wall improve the strength and stiffness of the structure and reduce the storey drift. If shear wall provided in infilled structure then, it will help to reduce the bending moment and shear force in beam and column. It is not necessary to provide shear wall up to whole height of the structure. If shear wall are curtailed in Bare Frame and infilled Frame up to certain height then concluded that the Infilled frame gives better result Than the Bare frame.
