Creep Behaviour in Reinforced Masonry Walls Interpreted by Acoustic Emission

Abstract:

Article Preview

An experimental analysis on a set of strengthened masonry walls has been carried out by means of cyclic loading tests in order to simulate the creep effects. The damage evolution of specimens reinforced by traditional or innovative methods is evaluated by the Acoustic Emission (AE) technique. The AE time dependence during fracture propagation is analysed through a power law. In addition, the AE frequency analysis is used to obtain information on the criticality of the ongoing process.
