The reinforced concrete (RC) shear walls are widely used to serve as the primary lateral loadresisting member in the high-rise buildings. An experimental investigation and analysis of the mechanical behaviour of hybrid fiber reinforced self-compacting concrete (HFRSCC) shear walls under pure torsion moment is presented in this paper. The nine HFSCC shear walls with the same height and longitudinal reinforcement ratio analytically were tested under pure torsion moment and no axial load. The effect of hybrid fiber ratio and horizontal reinforcement amount and aspect ratio on the failure characteristics, torsional behaviour, energy dissipation capacity of squat shear walls was studied. Result indicate that both hybrid and horizontal reinforcement ratio are increased the maximum torsional moment capacity and twist angle and that the hybrid fiber ratio is the key parameter that determines the failure mode of the HFSCC shear walls.
