A sandwich model is presented to predict the strength of masonry wall elements subjected to combined in-plane forces and moments, The validity of the model is demonstrated by comparisons with eighteen large-scale tests on clay brick and calcium-silicate block walls. While the experimental verification has been limited to clay brick and calcium-silicate block masonry, the sandwich model is also applicable to concrete block masonry.
