Welding is a major connection mode of SPSW (Steel Plate Shear Wall). However, the residual stress and deformation have great influence on the SPSW bearing capacity. A sound welding sequence and a welding technology are required so as to minimize the negative effect on SPSW stress. Therefore, in this paper, Exquisite FEM is selected as the way to analyze the full welding process of SPSW. Accordingly, the basic principles of SPSW welding are discussed in this paper.
