Abstract: A computer program called WCOMR was developed to analyze the characteristics of RC walls subjected to reversed cyclic loading. The WCOMR comprises RC element idealization described by smeared crack model and joint element by discrete crack model. The analytical treatment of bi-directional crack, including the crack opening and closure, was explained based on the coordinate transformation. The nonlinear solution to satisfy the governing equations of equilibrium was presented. The applicability of the WCOMR has been experimentally verified by the element and structural levels.
