Seismic behaviour and vulnerability of existing masonry structures are typically characterized by out-of-plane response of vertical walls. The dynamic response of such elements can be analytically assessed considering the dynamic equation of rigid bodies not resistant to tensile stresses. Many studies available in literature have highlighted the vulnerability of this type of structures against out-of-plane movements. In order to withstand horizontal seismic actions, appropriate and effective retrofitting interventions have to be properly designed. In this paper, the rocking response of a masonry wall retrofitted with elastic GFRP bars is investigated. A parametric survey is also carried out, to evaluate the increase in strength of the masonry wall, due to the presence of the composite material.

Abstract

Seismic behaviour and vulnerability of existing masonry structures are typically characterized by out-of-plane response of vertical walls. The dynamic response of such elements can be analytically assessed considering the dynamic equation of rigid bodies not resistant to tensile stresses. Many studies available in literature have highlighted the vulnerability of this type of structures against out-of-plane movements. In order to withstand horizontal seismic actions, appropriate and effective retrofitting interventions have to be properly designed. In this paper, the rocking response of a masonry wall retrofitted with elastic GFRP bars is investigated. A parametric survey is also carried out, to evaluate the increase in strength of the masonry wall, due to the presence of the composite material.
