Figure 4.2 Graph showing values of against slendemess ratio for different eccentricities. CEN ENV*111b-l-l IS 3404SA1 0017814 71A (1) Walls may be considered as stiffened at a vertical edge if - cracking between the wall and its stiffening wall is not expected i.e. both walls are made of materials with approximately similar deformation behaviour, are approximately evenly loaded, are erected simultaneously and bonded together and differential movement beween the walls, for example, due to...
