Event Title

Existing masonry structures under seismic impact and their reinforcement

Session

Civil Engineering, Infrastructure and Environment

Description

In ancient times, construction structures were built with materials that were known at that time. The best known method was the construction of masonry constructions without reinforcement (without arming). Non-reinforced masonry walls are highly resistant to static vertical loads but are too weak to withstand horizontal loads, such as earthquakes. At certain times, these structures are subject to cyclic earthquake loads, and in those quake earthquakes these structures have been damaged and many are completely destroyed. Nowadays, modern knowledge of horizontal loads is great; much research has been done to find the best solution for strengthening existing structures with masonry walls without reinforcing the important history of preserving them as cultural and other purposes. By detecting new materials such as Polymeric Fibers (FRPs) which have very large traction capability, and using them, it facilitates the easiest way to strengthen these structures for normal deformation with the surface of the walls as well as surface cracks by cutting forces.
