dc.description.abstractDue to recent popularity of tilt-up construction and concrete cores in tall buildings, reinforced concrete (RC) walls are now considered just as important structural element as beams, slabs and columns. The Australian Concrete Standard, AS3600-09 for the simplified design of axially loaded walls allows for increased capacity due to side restraints compared with previous code of AS3600-01 and current American Concrete Institute Code, ACI318-14. Nevertheless, all of these codes do not significantly account for openings such as doors or windows. In view of the limitation, it is necessary to widen the scope of the methods and rectify the inadequacies which exist in these major national design codes. This paper presents shortcomings of the AS3600-09 and also reviews existing experimental tests by previous researches. It includes wall with various opening configurations and support conditions subjected to eccentric axial loading. Using the results obtained from previous experimental studies, a simple design method for various opening walls with support conditions has been derived. Comparisons are then made with the otheravailable empirical equations to highlight its accuracy, reliability and outstanding performance.
