Performance and Analysis of Frames With URM Infills
The interaction of unreinforced hollow concrete block masonry (URM) infill walls and gravity load designed (GLD) frames has been studied at Cornell University. The primary goal of this...

Behaviour of Concrete Masonry Infill - Steel Frame Structures
Twenty-eight masonry shear panels infilled in steel frames were tested to ultimate strength under in-plane, horizontal loading applied at roof level. The parameters investigated in this...

Experimental Evaluation and Finite Element Analysis of Masonry-Infilled R/C Frames
Eleven tests were conducted on 1/2-scale, single-story infilled frame specimens to study the influence of the relative strengths of the infill panels and the bounding frames and the frame...

Computer-Assisted Design of Hollow Concrete Masonry Bearing Walls

Testing of Hollow Clay Tile Masonry Prisms
This paper presents test results of 610-mm wide (24-in.) by 1219-mm high (48-in) by 203- or 330-mm (8- or 13-in.) thick prisms constructed of hollow clay tiles. Three prisms were extracted...

Structural Reliability Analysis of Masonry Shear Walls

Gothic Structure and Design: Narbonne Cathedral
Viollet le Duc considered Narbonne Cathedral to be one of the best constructed Gothic buildings in France. The ambulatory piers are single courses of stone bonded into adjacent walls....

Specifications for Masonry Structures (ACI 530.1-92/ ASCE 6-92/TMS 602-92)
Specifications for Masonry Structures (ACE 530.1-92/ASCE 6-92/TMS 602-92) is a joint effort of the American Concrete Institute, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and The Masonry...

Masonry Carries the Load
Engineers frequently have preconceived notions about building materials. Masonry, for example, is commonly selected by architects for its color and texture, rather than by engineers for...

CenterCore Strengthening System for Seismic Hazard Reduction of Unreinforced Masonry Bearing Wall Buildings
The CenterCore technique of reinforcing unreinforced masonry walls was developed with the help of a National Science Foundation grant in 1984. The CenterCore strengthening system consists...

Earthquake Strengthening of a Twelve Story Non-Ductile Concrete Frame Building with Unreinforced Masonry Using Displacement Control Criterion
The structural concern with the Cooper Arms Apartment building when subjected to ground shaking was the in-plane and out-of-plane forces on the infill and consequences of the infill resisting...

Report and Summary of ATC-31—Evaluation of the Performance of Seismically Retrofitted Buildings
Structural and damage data for seismically retrofitted buildings affected by the October 1, 1987 Whittier Narrows and October 17, 1989 Loma Prieta, California earthquakes were collected...

A Shear Transfer Model for Floor-To-Wall Connections in Concrete Masonry Structures
Based upon experiments conducted at the Univ of California, San Diego (UCSD) on floor-to-wall connections in concrete masonry structures, a constitutive model was developed for the overall...

Analysis of Masonry Walls with Smeared and Discrete Crack Models
To design modern reinforced masonry structures for seismic loads and to evaluate the seismic safety of existing unreinforced masonry buildings, the shear resistance of masonry shear walls...

Three-Dimensional Analysis Model for Complete Masonry Buildings
For the predictive and diagnostic analysis of the complete nonlinear response of masonry buildings to seismic load input, a 3-D finite element model is under development at UCSD. The model,...

New Views for Modeling Dynamic Response of URM Buildings
Various computational models are used to depict seismic response of an unreinforced masonry building that was subjected to the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake. The worthiness of various analytical...

Full-Scale Testing of Unreinforced Masonry Infill Frame Panels
This paper presents the results of the out-of-plane testing phase of the National Science Foundation Grant BCS 9102347. This phase of the program addresses the out-of-plane response to...

Out-of-plane and In-plane Testing of URM Infills
This paper summarizes the out-of-plane followed by in-plane quasi-static testing of two, full-scale Unreinforced Masonry (URM) Hollow Clay Tile (HCT) infills. The testing is part of a...

Strength, Behavior and Repair of Masonry Infills
Results of a series of experiments are presented on seismic performance of unreinforced masonry infill panels. The object of the investigation is to examine the loss of out-of-plane strength...
