I want to model the Progressive Collapse of a two-dimensional shear wall. It is necessary to split the wall to remove a part of the wall. In modeling, I have modeled the boundary element with a column. If I divide the wall into two parts or four I get different results. What is the reason?

I've found something about the SeismoStruct and wall reinforcing, but nothing regarding the divided shear wall. According to a discussion found on the official forums, you will have to try the boundary elements to make it easier to perform the divide operation.

Here is the discussion, in case you want to learn more and if you're at that website, create a post and state your issue and someone with more expertise will provide the answer:
