Design of insulated concrete wall panels (ICWPs) resides outside of the current building code provisions. The behavior of an ICWP is largely a function of the wythe connector stiffness and strength. Using the percent composite analogy, designers of partially composite ICWPs can follow the design process for a solid wall. However, they must be aware of the limitations of this approach and the various factors that affect the panel deflections and stresses when subjected to service and design loadings.
