Analysis of Strengthening Methods for Retained Exterior Walls during a Structural Retrofit

Abstract:

Article Preview

A three-story old building made up of masonry and wood will be retrofitted to be a new 14-story building, retaining two exterior walls and removing all internal members. To prevent the retained walls form deforming severely or collapse during the retrofit is necessary. The finite element analysis software, ANSYS, is used to calculate the responses of the retaining walls under possible loading conditions. The original retrofit proposal for the old building is refined based on the calculation results.
