Wall-diaphragm connections can affect overall seism ic performance of older unreinforced masonry buildi ngs. Results are presented of an experimental study desi gn d to evaluate the behavior of typical brick wall to wood joist / diaphragm connections. Tests were conducted on two different types of component specimens, usi ng three different loading methods. Contributions of frictio n and of strap anchor nails loaded in shear have be en considered separately and together in the testing m atrix… CONTINUE READING
