In this paper, the results of an analytical, computational and experimental investigation are presented, where are developed inelastic methods for modeling (in plane and out plane) concrete frames infilled with nonreinforced masonry. In the paper the complex interaction of this system is exposed and a methodology that allows to considering these elements in the conventional analysis and designs is proposed. The presented methodologies include modeling of frames in contact with the masonry walls and modeling of frames which are isolated from these elements. Additionally, the comparison of the experimental and computational results is made, which allows to calibrating the analytical models with the conventional construction techniques and the particular characteristics of the materials that are currently used.
