Paper Title:
Experimental Behavior of Full Scale URM Building Retrofitted with Ferrocement Overlay
  Abstract

This paper presents a study on the behavior of a damaged full scale unreinforced brick masonry building, retrofitted with ferrocement overlay and cement based grout injection, tested under cyclic loading. Damage mechanism and force-deformation behavior of the retrofitted structure are compared with its pre-damaged response to quantify the beneficial effects of retrofitting scheme. The lateral load capacity of the retrofitted building was significantly improved and the damage mechanism was transformed from mixed compression-flexural-shear mode to a more stable flexural rocking mode. The energy dissipation capacity, however, remained unchanged and the deformation capacity was slightly decreased.
