Confined Masonry – Analysis, Design and Comparison

10 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

Considering the present scenario, it is observed that the response of the unreinforced masonry building during the earthquake conditions have resulted into significant damages in buildings and subsequent life loss. The conventional method of masonry construction adopted so far utilizes the same construction material as in confined masonry, however the construction technique differs for both. This study has considered the analysis, design and comparison of confined masonry wall with unreinforced masonry wall. The differences in the method of construction and the performance of both, under the seismic conditions has been considered through the study on a sample building. A user friendly tool in the form of Microsoft excel worksheet is to be generated to design a confined masonry wall. The study is aimed at determining the more economic construction between the unreinforced and confined masonry.

Keyphrases: Confined masonry, masonry wall, reinforced masonry
