Dynamic testing of a four-storey building with reinforced concrete and unreinforced masonry walls: prediction, test results and data set
AbstractThis paper presents the results of a series of shake-table tests on a half-scale, four-storey building with reinforced concrete and unreinforced masonry walls. Due to the lack of referenceExpand

Evaluation of Uncertainties in the Seismic Assessment of Existing Masonry Buildings
The assessment of existing masonry buildings is an important issue in earthquake prone countries like Italy. The current Italian building code, which adopts the approach proposed by Eurocode 8,Expand

Influence of boundary conditions on the out-of-plane response of brick masonry walls in buildings with RC slabs
In modern unreinforced masonry buildings with stiff RC slabs, walls of the top floor are most susceptible to out-of-plane failure. The out-of-plane response depends not only on the acceleration demandExpand

Observations on out-of-plane behaviour of URM walls in buildings with RC slabs
In Switzerland many new residential buildings are constructed as unreinforced masonry (URM) structures or as mixed structures where URM walls are coupled with reinforced concrete (RC) walls by RCExpand

Comportamento degli edifici in muratura nella sequenza sismica del 2012 in Emilia
La sequenza sismica iniziata il 20 maggio 2012 in Emilia Romagna ha colpito una regione nella quale le strutture in muratura portante rappresentano un’ampia parte del costruito esistente e laExpand

Shake Table Testing of a Half-Scaled RC-URM Wall Structure
With the introduction of higher seismic design forces in the Swiss loading standard of 2003 most unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings fail to satisfy the seismic design check. For this reason, in newExpand

Seismic Vulnerability of Old Italian Railway Stations
TLDR
Nonlinear global analyses by equivalent-frame macroelement modelling and linear kinematic analyses of possible local failure modes have been used to assess the seismic response of building prototypes representative of the most common architectural typologies. Expand
