\'Modularised\' Closed-Form Mathematical model for predicting the bracing performance of plasterboard clad walls
Y. L. Liew, E. F. Gad and C. F. Duffield

    This paper presents a new approach to predict the racking load-displacement response of plasterboard clad walls found in Australian light-framed residential structures under monotonic racking load. The method is based on a closed-form mathematical model, described herein as the
