Analysis of Failure Mode of Masonry Wall under Vertical Compressive Stress
The application of ABAQUS finite element software non-linear finite element analysis of brick masonry walls with structural column. Build three brick masonry wall models, and analysis of the damage form of the wall under different vertical compressive stress and horizontal force. Thus the analysis result compared with the calculation result of the relevant specification formula, in order to get validate compression influence of masonry aseismic walls. It turned out that different vertical compressive stress effect the shear capacity, and failure mode of brick masonry wall structure with a structural column.
