Re: Unreinforced Masonry Upgrades

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

We have just completed an NSF project on retrofitting of URM walls with
fiber composites; the papers were sent to the journals in the last couple
of months and therefore are not in print yet.  If you wish, you may contact
me and I will be glad to send you copies of these papers.  The load and
deformation capacity of the retrofitted walls subjected to 20 or so cycles
of loading is simply amazing.
