Abstract: The objective of this article is to study the use of FE (Finite Element) tool in analyzed the masonry wall. Masonry is made up of highly nonlinear material and its property varies from place to place. It is difficult to do an experiment on a full-scale model of a masonry wall. Its effect is also underestimated in construction of low rise building. As if the wall is confined and properly bonded to the beam and column. It enhances the performance of low rise building during seismic forces. As in low rise building energy is dissipated by cracking. If masonry wall is cast monolithically (like confined masonry) with the column, it augments the stiffness of building and helps to sustain additional load compare to conventional construction practice. In this study numerical nonlinear analysis of wall panel is done by FE tool (ABAQUS). Using Concrete Damage Plasticity Model (CDP). And results are compared with the existing work done by other researchers and it is observed that results were satisfactory.
