During ground motions, many reinforced concrete buildings in urban areas that are located in active seismic zones may sustain moderate to severe damage. Buildings frequently use shear walls to resist earthquake-induced lateral loads. Shear walls have a strong resistance to wind and seismic forces, and they can even be built on soils with weak bases by using various ground improvement techniques. The construction process is quick, and the strength parameters and ability to withstand bare horizontal loads are very high. Due to their superior load-carrying capacity, shear walls are frequently utilized in earthquake-prone areas. These shear walls are able to absorb not only the loads caused by earthquakes but also the loads caused by winds, which are quite high in some zones. Even though these kinds of structures were first used in western countries in the early 1990s, this ideology changed quickly and quickly spread all over the world. In the context of Indian construction, the form work utilized in this type of construction is novel. In recent years, certain patented systems based on imported technologies have entered the Indian market, including the "Mascon System" from Canada and the "Mivan System" from Malaysia. Walls and slabs are cast in one operation at the site using specially designed, light-weight, pre-engineered aluminum forms that are easy to handle (with minimal labor and no equipment) and eliminate the need for traditional column and beam construction. In order to anticipate how forces and deformations will be distributed during an earthquake, it is necessary to investigate the actual seismic performance of buildings with shear walls
