dc.description.abstractThis report discusses the use of plane frame idealizations for the analysis of perforated shear walls. The relationships between the perforated masonry walls and the equivalent frames that simulate them are examined. T h e method is proven accurate for different wall shapes by comparing the results with those obtained from finite element analyses. T h e advantages of the method over the finite element method are discussed.
