Concrete filled composite shear wall (CFCSW) can provide many benefits by taking advantages of two components. This paper reviews the development of CFCSW in terms of connection configurations and steel plate types. The structural behaviour of CFCSW under various loading conditions is summarised and discussed. The effects of many parameters, including axial load ratio, steel plate reinforcement ratio and spacing of connectors on the performance of CFCSW are reviewed. The equations in current standards are performed and compared. The results indicate that the increase of axial force ratio leads to rapid stiffness degradation and strength degradation of CFCSW when subjected to cyclic lateral l..
