Earthquake is a natural calamity. It has been observed that the earthquake has proved to be more fatal in today’s time. The prime reason for this catastrophe is the extermination of the man-made structures during the earthquake, Lack of lateral strength and stability in the man-made structure is the prime reason for their demolition during the earthquake. Mostly man-made structure is multistory buildings for this reason that is necessary for the multistory building to withstand against seismic activities. For the past few decades, some new methods have been adopted to make multistory building laterally strong and stable, a shear wall is one of them which are a structural member which provides lateral stiffness and strength to the structure. The earthquake can be even more lethal on sloping land. This paper studies the influence of shear wall in the multistory building built on sloping ground. For this purpose, four different models have been taken. Modal one is the conventional rigid frame building and the remaining three models are kept with the shear wall. All conditions (ground slope, material, seismic zone, soil condition, etc.) Except for the size of the shear wall are identical. The linear static analysis has been carried out to evaluate the story shear and its reduction as a result in all three cases. The entire analysis is done on software called sap: 2000.
