The hotel building archetypes were designed according to ASCE 7-10. For the hotel
building, the bearing walls were mainly the interior walls, which allowed the window openings on
the exterior walls. Figure 14-b illustrates the schematic drawing of a 2-story hotel building model
used in OpenSees.
Window sills and headers would help to transfer the force around the wall openings, but
they are not part of the lateral-force-resisting systems. So, they were not considered in the

5.4 Design of Shear Walls
The earthquake loads were calculated in accordance with Chapter 11 of ASCE 7-10. In this
section, the example of shear wall design for the 2-story office building was given. Same design
procedures apply to all other building archetypes in this research.
Firstly, Site Class needs to be determined. As mentioned above, the office building was
assumed in Site Class D. Then, the Maximum Considered Earthquake (MCE) spectral response
acceleration parameter for short periods (SMs) and at 1 s (SMi) were calculated by the following
