Abstract:   (1318 Views)
An effective approach for strengthening masonry buildings is to apply shotcrete reinforced with mesh on the surface of the wall. It is not possible to assess the behaviour of coated walls solely using analytical approaches based on simple equations of theory of elasticity without the use of numerical methods. Unreinforcced masonry wall is modelled in this study using the finite element software “ANSYS” to assess the behavior of walls strengthened with reinforced jacket. The accuracy of the model is ensured by calibrating the model against results obtained from laboratory tests. Then the calibrated model is generilized to model the strengthed wall and, finally, the analytical results obtained from masonry walls and strengthed walls are compared and evaluated.
