To resolve the undesirable effects of reinforced concrete non-structural walls to the earthquake behaviour of structural members, weak points (called "Structural Slits") are intentionally provided at the connection between structural members and non-structural walls. This paper presents an estimation method for the stress developed in the "Structural Slits" which are applied to the non-structural walls of reinforced concrete high-rise residential buildings.
