INTERACTION DIAGRAM FOR A WALL UNDER COMBINED LOADING (AXIAL LOAD AND BENDING)
INTERACTION DIAGRAM FOR A WALL UNDER COMBINED LOADING (AXIAL LOAD AND BENDING)It is quite common in masonry buildings to have masonry walls subjected to combined axial load and in-plane bending, which occurs about the strong axis of the wall cross section (the out-of-plane bending occurs about the weak axis of the wall cross section). Such walls are called shear walls. A shear wall acts as a bearing wall when it carries gravity loads from roofs or floors it might be supporting, as well as lateral load (directed parallel to itself or in-plane) transferred to it from the diaphragm (roof or floor, or both in the case of a multistory building).A complete treatment of shear walls is presented in
