Analytical study of infilled frame with opening is done using finite element method. Lateral stiffness of the frame without infill, with infill and with having opening has been investigated. The effect of opening area against lateral stiffness of infilled frame has been worked out. The variation of aspect ratio, opening size with strut width reduction factor is derived. The effect of number of storey on lateral stiffness of structure is also included in the study.
