Traditional shear walls are not suitable for current high-rise buildings. In this study, the performance of shear wall based on double-layer steel plate material was researched. Five sets of double-layer steel plate specimens were designed and tested with vertical seam, horizontal seam and shear span ratio as variables. Experimental phenomena and data were recorded for analysing the skeleton curve, strength, and stiffness degradation to understand the earthquake resistance. According to the experimental results, it could be found that the test pieces of the vertical and horizontal seams had higher strength and rigidity than other test pieces, and had better earthquake resistance. This study proves the seismic resistance of the double-layer steel shear wall through experiments and provides some theoretical support for its application in high-rise buildings.
