Reinforced concrete (RC) shear walls are considered as one of the main lateral load resisting structural members in RC buildings. Apart from acting as a lateral load resisting system, the RC shear walls tend to provide ductility, stability and stiffness to the structure. In the present work, an analysis is carried out to assess the residual response of a fire-exposed reinforced concrete structure, by considering the presence of RC shear walls contributing toward the stability of such a structure exposed to fire. The analysis carried out in the present work includes the study of the stability of a multi-storeyed RC building with and without shear walls exposed to high temperatures developed due to fire. The results from this study indicate that the inclusion of shear walls at different locations in the building has a predominant effect on the stability of the RC building in the event of a fire. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
