The experimental results on six specimens of the perforated brick masonry walls supported on frames are given. The influence of height – span ratio Hw/Lo, beam-column rigid ratio of frame Kmb/Kmc and percentage of longitudinal bars of mean p=Aa/bho on the behaviour and strength are discussed. The plastic limit analyses for bearing capacity of wall – framecomposite structures are carried our and the formulas their flexural and shear stregth, which tally with the test results, are presented. The suggestion of design are put forward for the masonry walls on frame.
