The Quasi-Frame-Shear-Wall Method for Reinforcement of Concrete-Masonry Mixed Structures
Based on seismic analysis of concrete-masonry mixed structure, a new strengthening method will be introduced. In order to find the effective and reasonable reinforcement measures to adjust to the characteristics of the mixed structure, the method of equivalent stiffness should apply to the structure, it can change the original unreasonable force transmission route, and then transform and reinforce the original structure into a quasi-frame-shear wall structure whose force transmission route is similar to frame-shear wall structure. This could be a reference to similar projects.
