The plan commission's recommendations to eliminate speakers and televisions changes the concept of the beer garden he originally had in mind, Maqsood said, while construction of masonry walls is also beyond that plan.
The displacement ductility of the model wall refers to the deformability of the masonry wall without significant loss of shear bearing capacity.
[I.sub.sqi] is strength factor in the ith direction; [Q.sub.j] is lateral resistance of vertical members in group j and in the ith direction, calculated as [[tau].sub.j][A.sub.j]; [[tau].sub.j] is standard shear strength of the vertical members of group j in the ith direction; [A.sub.j] is the effective area of vertical members of group j at the calculation floor; [[tau].sub.c] is shear strength of tie columns in masonry structure; [[tau].sub.w] is shear strength of masonry wall; [[xi].sub.N] is effect factor of normal shear stress of masonry structures; [f.sub.vk,sw] is standard shear strength of masonry wall; w is gravity load per unit area of masonry structure, which was taken as 12000 Pa; [summa] [A.sub.f] is the total area of the calculation floor and the ones over this floor.
For a masonry structure with SCC, the masonry walls are the dominating lateral force-resisting elements, and, unlike confined masonry construction, the strength of masonry confined by SCC would not increase when used in seismic calculation.
Similarly, for scaled distance 1.89 m/[kg.sup.1/3], unreinforced wall collapsed completely and confined masonry wall, though damaged, remained intact as shown in Figure 8.
Different techniques have been used in the past to strengthen the masonry walls subjected to different mode of loadings such as axial compression, in-plane and out of plane bending and shear [1-4].
Except for brick masonry wall in some modelling, almost all structures in this research have been modelled as an RC building.
Tuckpointing is a common maintenance repair for masonry walls. It involves filling in eroded/weathered mortar joints between masonry units with new mortar material.
Tests conducted at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Zagreb, were performed on unreinforced masonry (URM), reinforced and strengthened masonry walls. Masonry elements in this research were made of solid masonry units (bricks).
