Seismic Performance of CFRP Strengthened Unreinforced Masonry Structures


Article Preview

This paper studies the earthquake performance of strengthening unreinforced masonry structures with CFRP. Using CFRP reinforced masonry structures can substantially increase the ultimate flexural strength and resisted deformations of the walls and columns ,at the same time can also effectively dispersed the distribution of crack width of cracks and constraints.
