Despite the extensive research on the seismic behavior of infilled frames since 1960’s, there is no general consensus towards a unified approach. Purpose of this study is to review the existing analytical and experimental research, as well as code provisions, on masonry and on reinforced concrete infilled frames. The basic characteristics of infilled frames and how these affect seismic performance are summed up. Different approaches of the equivalent strut, broadly used for modeling of the infilled frames, are thoroughly discussed.
