It is necessary to study failure dependence problem in order to solve system reliability in the field of Civil Engineering. In this paper, failure dependence of reinforced concrete shear walls with different openings (including the whole shear wall, the shear wall with small opening, the coupled shear wall, the shear wall frame) are studied under fortification earthquakes using Monte Carlo method. The results demonstrate that failure of reinforced concrete shear walls with different openings is neither fully independent nor fully relevant. The number of failure dependent floors is about one-half total floors. The failure dependent floors are concentrated mainly in the upper part.
