Seismic Performance of Arc-Shaped Wall

Abstract:

Article Preview

From the damage investigation of Ning’er earthquake and Wenchuan earthquake, it was found that the damage of arc-shaped wall was severe. The seismic response analyses indicate great differences in basic mechanical properties between arc-shaped wall and unarc-shaped wall. Because of stress concentration in the corner of arc-shaped wall, it is easy to exceed the limits of brick’s intensity, in addition, brittle failure of brick would happen. So arc-shaped wall should be used less in the areas where earthquakes are a common occurrence.
