Shear in reinforced and unreinforced masonry : response, design and construction
Dhanasekar, Manicka (2011) Shear in reinforced and unreinforced masonry : response, design and construction. In Kitiponrchai, Sritawat (Ed.) Procedia Engineering, Elsevier Ltd., Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong, pp. 2069-2076.
This paper describes the vulnerability of masonry under shear; first the mechanisms of in-plane and out-of-plane shear performance of masonry are reviewed; both the unreinforced and lightly reinforced masonry wall systems are considered. Factors affecting the response of unreinforced and reinforced masonry to shear are described and the effect of the variability of those factors to the failure mode of masonry shear walls is also discussed. Some critique is provided on the existing design provisions in various masonry standards.
