Can anyone please tell me when it comes to moment curvature analysis why do we focus on the strong axis of the walls only? Don’t we need to examine the displacement capability of the wall in weak direction more? I understand that the moment in weak axis can be ignore but the point of moment curvature analysis is to check the member’s displacement capacity and since the wall connects to the diaphragm that will drift in both direction, why don’t we check the moment curvature of wall in weak axis (out of plane) direction?
