Differential axial deformation between column elements and shear wall elements of cores increase with building height and geometric complexity. Adverse effects due to the differential axial deformation reduce building performance and life time serviceability. Quantifying axial deformations using ambient measurements from vibrating wire, external mechanical and electronic strain gauges in order to acquire adequate provisions to mitigate the adverse effects is well established method. However, these gauges require installing in or on elements to acquire continuous measurements and hence use of these gauges is uneconomical and inconvenient. This motivates to develop a method to quantify the axial deformations. This paper proposes an innovative method based on modal parameters to quantify axial deformations of shear wall elements in cores of buildings. Capabilities of the method are presented though an illustrative example.
