Seismic Response Patterns for URM Buildings

  title={Seismic Response Patterns for URM Buildings},
  author={Daniel Paul Abrams}
}
Dynamic response of unreinforced masonry (URM) building systems is a complex phenomenon dependent on the strength, stiffness, and ductility of the shear walls, floor diaphragms, and their connections. Unreinforced walls with door and window openings resist in-plane shear forces as a continuum of elements that can crack, crush, and rock. The strength and stiffness of these elements is variable with the height-to-length aspect ratio, the amount of vertical compressive force, and the amount of… CONTINUE READING
