Contrast Investigation on Aseismatic Behavior of Masonry Wall Strengthened with Carbon Fiber Sheet and Steel-Meshed Cement Mortar
Based on the experiment of four brick masonry walls under low-cyclic lateral loading, the effectiveness of the method of using the continuous carbon fiber sheet(CFS) and steel-meshed cement mortar to strengthen the brick masonry walls for improving their aseismatic performance is studied. The failure mechanism and aseismatic behavior of the walls are analyzed. Finally, the destructive mode, load bearing capacity, deformation, hysteresis characteristics and ductility are also analyzed qualitatively for the individual wall.
