Simulation of Fracture of Masonry

Evaluation of Kevlar Fabric Reinforcement for Masonry Walls

Rehabilitation of Masonry Combined Sewers in the City of St. Louis

Masonry Sewer Rehab
The city of St. Louis is rehabilitating some of the oldest masonry sewers in the country. The ongoing project includes all major types of sewer rehabilitation, including shotcrete, cast-in-place-pipe,...

Standard Process Simulation Model for Construction Operations

Finite elements for limit analysis of homogenized block masonry walls

Damage Models for Masonry Structures

Sensing and Control for Robotic Masonry
Due to kiln firing in the brick fabrication process, bricks vary in color, texture, and size. In an effort to automate masonry, sensing and control modules are required to ensure a normal...

Dynamic Testing of Unreinforced Brick Masonry Infills
A significant seismic hazard may exist when unreinforced masonry infill panels fall out of their surrounding frames as a result of excessive accelerations applied normal to their plane....

Limit States Analysis of Masonry Arches
The limit states analysis of masonry arches, heretofore used only for the analysis of hinging mechanisms within the arch ring, is shown to have wider applicability. Lower and upper bounds...

A Peice-wise Linear Evaluation of Masonry Infills Subjected to Out-of-plane Seiesmic Drift
This paper summarizes the out-of-plane testing and analytical modeling of a full-scale unreinforced masonry (URM) infilled frame and a bare frame without infilling. The testing was part...

Seismic Strengthening of URM Buildings with Steel Bracing
Unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings with large open fronts are extremely vulnerable to seismic inputs posing serious life safety hazard. Steel bracing systems have been used to upgrade...

The Structural History of the Jacob Bachmann Tavern
The Jacob Bachmann Tavern is located in Easton, Pennsylvania. It is a collection of four interconnected buildings that have been constructed and modified over a period of 240 years. Structural...
