Abstract: Reinforced concrete frames with masonry infill walls are widespread systems in many earthquake-prone regions of the world. The infill walls are used for insulation, partition and aesthetic purposes rather than structural purposes and generally considered as non-structural elements in structural design. But various experiments and studies proves that it also contributes to Lateral stiffness and resistance of buildings.
