Powerful spreadsheet to design shear walls under wind plus dead load combination. Essential for stability check of reinforced concrete structure. If you spend hours calculating wall stiffnesses, ∑(kr2) etc. for reinforcement areas and concrete stresses - then this spreadsheet will reduce your design time to as little as several minutes.

Just on comment:
Be careful with this worksheet as it doesn't take into account the full coupling of elements that constitute each core. What it does is to simply sum the stiffness of the individual rectangular elements as if they were separate. This may lead to severe errors in the analysis!

Take a look at Zalka's book (Global structural analysis of buildings) and you'll find a consistent and easy method to evaluate the global response of your building.
