The steel shear wall system has been considered as a structural system over the past few decades. This issue deals with wind and earthquake lateral forces due to its hardness, loading capacity and plasticity. This type of the system, with the use of external hardness resulting from the geometric shape of the waves, has better buckling strength than a hardened and smooth mood. In this paper, at first, the experimental test is validated with ABAQUS software which simple rectangular steel plate was used in the shear wall so that both cyclic and monotonic loading conditions have been compared Since then the concrete shear wall behavior has been evaluated using sinusoidal steel plates with different variables such as concrete compressive strength 25 and 35 MPa thickness of corrugated plate including 0.8 and 1 mm and wave height 25 and 50 mm are considered as variables. The interaction between concrete and steel is applied using Tie and the base of the wall is fixed. Moreover, the sample is loaded in accordance with the ATC24 instruction with a displacement of 85 mm using displacement/rotation by activating U1 direction as lateral load. Generally, eight different models have been evaluated and the pushover graphs are compared based on thickness and concrete strength. The results show that increasing the thickness, the wave height and the compressive strength of the concrete leads to increased resistance and ductility.
