Reinforced concrete (RC) frame structures with infill walls, usually of unknown strength, are commonly used in developing countries. Current seismic codes used in these countries lack adequate consideration of the infill material and give wide options to the builders to choose a material without knowing its influence during earthquakes. This has resulted in poor seismic performance of these structures, usually with cracks appearing on the infill walls during moderate seismic action. To address this problem, this research treats the seismic response of RC frame structures with infill having a range of properties using Finite Element techniques. The parameters considered here are the Young’s modulus of the infill material, peak ground acceleration and percentage opening within the infill wall. Results show the influence of infill on the overall seismic performance of these structures and can be used for developing guidance for their seismic design.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
