The numerical model proposed for simulation of out-of-plane instability in rectangular walls is further examined in this paper by predicting the in-plane and out-of-plane responses of a singly reinforced wall specimen that was tested in Switzerland (EPFL). The model predictions were compared with the experimental measurements and the capability of the model to capture this mode of failure was verified by the researchers at EPFL.
