The paper reviews recent research work on the flexural strength of brickwork and of non-loadbearing panels simply supported on three and four sides. Walls whose lateral resistance depends on in-plane forces are also considered. Within certain limits, it is possible to estimate the strength of the various types of wall and the question of safety factors, which are necessary to apply this knowledge in design, is discussed.
The paper shows how a beam and column support system for a shear wall can be included in a plane frame analysis. This technique which is valid for both vertical and lateral load can be used to analyse the wall and its support system in one computer run. Comparison with finite element results illustrates the accuracy.

The analysis of the elastic earthquake respmse of non-symmetric multi-storey structures is presented, with consideration of the partial restraint of the structure in the subgrade. The analysis is based on the continuous connection method, using the normal modes of the structure. Several numerical examples represent the influence of the structure's eccentricity and the subgrade's rigidity on the response.
