The combined deflection of piers B, C, D, and E are determined from the summation of their own individual

rigidities (use rectangular pier fixed curve #2 from figure 7-5) as follows:

The total shear wall deflection and stiffness can now be found as follows:

)TOTAL = )Solid - )Strip + )BCDE

= 0.4829" = 0.2341" + 0.3981" = 0.6469"

and D. This can be done by dividing the stiffness of the individual piers by the summation of stiffnesses of

all the piers as follows:
