CONGRESO APPROACHES FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE SEISMIC PERFORMANCE OF MASONRY CONSTRUCTIONS

Abstract

In the paper one presents some approaches for improving the resistance of masonry constructions to dynamic events through the adoption of composite reinforcements. Design approaches may be vary very significantly depending on the geometry and the expected failure modes of the structural system, in order to best fit the specific need of the structure under analysis. In the paper some design issues and criteria are presented according to some different typologies and geometries of the masonry structures, able to strengthen the structural system and to increase the seismic resistance of the construction, tailored on its shape and overall behavior.
