Type I Structure (Rigid Frame System)

Подпись:Rigid frame systems consist of rectangles of vertical columns and horizontal beams connected together in the same plane. It should be noted that a bearing wall is a special case of the rigid frame system.

Type II Structure (Shear Walls)

The shear wall formation is a thin slender beam cantilevered verti­cally to resist lateral forces. It can take the form of a rectangle or box-shaped core, which can be used to gather vertical transporta­tion and energy distribution systems (e. g., stairs, elevators, toilets, mechanical shafts).
