Article Preview

In order to investigate the seismic performance of recycled concrete perforated brick masonry, an experiment was conducted on three specimens of recycled concrete perforated brick walls subjected to low frequency reversed cyclic load test. The loading process, failure mechanism, ultimate bearing capacity was studied. The seismic behavior such as hysteretic characteristics, backbone curve, ductility, energy dissipation capacity were analyzed too. The test results show that the seismic performance of recycled concrete perforated brick masonry is similar to those of ordinary concrete perforated brick walls. The test results also indicate that the seismic behavior of recycled concrete perforated brick masonry is good. The specimens have good hysteresis loops and ductility, strong energy dissipation capacities.
