in this study efficiency of a simple macroscopic model in predicting the nonlinear response of a reinforced concrete shear wall specimen tested uneer monotonic loading is evaluated the model consists of nonlinear spring elements representing flexural and shear behaviior the model was implemented in abaqus 6.6 and the analysis results show excellent agreement with experimental measurements of the specimen. the experimental and analytical responses were compared both globally and locally the global parameters include lateral load top displacement lateral load top flexural displacement lateral load top shear displacement and inter story and overall drift profiles of the specimen. the local parameters consis of neutral axis position at different stages of loading and lateral load versus axial displacemnt response of the first story boundary elements.
