Flexural components of deflection need not be considered in determining the rigidity of an unreinforced masonry wall.
Wall piers shall be analyzed according to the following procedure, which is diagrammed in Figure A112.2.2.
- (Equation A1-18)
- (Equation A1-19)
- (Equation A1-20)
- (Equation A1-21)(Equation A1-22)
- Masonry pier tension stress. Unreinforced masonry wall piers need not be analyzed for tension stress.
Shear walls without openings shall be analyzed the same as for walls with openings, except that Vr shall be calculated as follows:
