Paraseismic Strengthening of Masonry Walls by FRP Composites

Abstract:

Article Preview

The University for Applied Sciences of Fribourg (UAS-FR) proceeded to theoretical and experimental studies on paraseismic strengthening of masonry walls. These studies aimed to develop new strengthening methods, mainly with Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite materials. The experimental studies analysed the behaviour of reinforced masonry walls under vertical load and horizontal static-cyclic load with various orientation of reinforcements. This study covers two kinds of FRP reinforcement: carbon sheet and carbon mesh.
