Allowable Torsional Eccentricity for the Simplified Method for the Seismic Analysis of Low-Rise Confined Masonry Shear-Wall Buildings of Mexican Codes

Abstract

A parametric study devoted to assess the limiting value for the static eccentricity (es) for the application of the simplified method for seismic analysis (SMSA) of bearing-wall confined masonry structures of Mexican Building Codes is presented. Based upon the results of a comprehensive parametric study, limiting values for es for the use of the SMSA are… (More)
