The question of proper design of wall columns and end beams is very important, but it does not receive in practical design the attenton that it deserves. As a consequence, in many structures, wall columns have a much smaller factor of safety than the rest of the structure. The purpose of this paper is to supply information which could be used by the designer, but also to create a dicussion which may throw more light on the subject.
