DEFORMATION AND FORCE CAPACITY ASSESSMENT ISSUES IN STRUCTURAL WALL BUILDINGS

The difficulties in assessing the probable deformation and force states of structural wall buildings under lateral earthquake forces are evaluated by means of laboratory test results from a five-story full-scale reinforced masonry structural wall research building tested to failure at the University of California, San Diego under simulated seismic loads.
