State-of-the-Art Review on Masonry Structure: Identification Behaviour and Seismic Retrofitting Techniques for Structures

Abhishek Ghimire [4]


Abstract: Masonry structures are commonly constructed and are popular in developing countries due to its low cost and easiness on construction. It has been studied from different experiment that these buildings are vulnerable to strong external loading such as earthquake, strong wind, blast etc. because of lack of strength, ductility and inappropriate configuration of building. In this paper, the behaviour of masonry structure during earthquake and the previous studies on the strengthening techniques for masonry buildings are reviewed and summarized. It is expected that this paper will provide some additional information and guidance for household and engineers in selecting an appropriate retrofitting technique for masonry structures.
