Nowadays, the use of steel shear wall as a lateral bearing system in steel and concrete buildings has been considered. The ability of accurate numerical modeling based on the actual behavior of these walls in the accurate analysis of structures with steel shear walls is of great importance. In this article, an attempt has been made to compare the validity of laboratory and numerical samples. For this purpose, laboratory models were first modeled using ABAQUS software and the specimens were compared with each other. Two laboratory specimens of flat shear steel wall and steel shear wall with 45 degree trapezoidal corrugated sheet, vertical with one to three scale and width to thickness ratio of 1066, which were subjected to cyclic loading in the structural laboratory of Road, Housing and Urban Development Research Center. Then, by examining the obtained hysteresis diagrams, seismic parameters such as strength, hardness, ductility are obtained and compared with each other. According to the obtained results, there is a good match between the laboratory results and the results of the modeled sample, and this match confirms the accuracy of the modeled sample.
