Structural wall panels often experience eccentric loads due to a range of loading conditions including: corbel element applied to the wall, imperfections in construction, an uneven loading condition on top of the wall or due to temporary loading during operation and/or maintenance. Openings in these walls are frequently required as a result of changes to a buildings function, architectural or mechanical necessities. This is typically for the provision of doors and windows or for services including ventilation and air-conditioning ducts.
