Using the Macroelement Method to Seismically Assess Complex URM Buildings
Existing unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings are often composed of traditional construction techniques, with poor connections between walls and diaphragms that results in poor performance when subjected to seismic actions. ...
Discrete Element Modelling of Unreinforced Masonry Buildings and Parts
Post-earthquake inspections have highlighted that out-of-plane failure of unreinforced masonry (URM) walls is one of the most life threatening hazards related to earthquakes. Connections between structural elements and ...
Analytical and Numerical Prediction of the Vulnerability of Post-Earthquake Observed URM Macroblocks
Unreinforced masonry (URM) structures are known to perform poorly when subjected to earthquake-induced ground shaking. Among others, connections between structural elements and interlocking across the cross-section play ...
