An attempt is made to determine the equilibrium state attained in masonry-infilled RC frames subjected to in-plane shear forces once the material’s tensile strength has been overcome. The non-linear equilibrium problem is solved by making use of a simple mechanical model and resorting to the principle of stationary total potential energy. Numerical solutions are obtained by an in-house F.E. code that combines standard linear elastic elements with no-tension ones. Thus, the influence of geometrical and loading parameters on the system equilibrium can be assessed.

Abstract

An attempt is made to determine the equilibrium state attained in masonry-infilled RC frames subjected to in-plane shear forces once the material’s tensile strength has been overcome. The non-linear equilibrium problem is solved by making use of a simple mechanical model and resorting to the principle of stationary total potential energy. Numerical solutions are obtained by an in-house F.E. code that combines standard linear elastic elements with no-tension ones. Thus, the influence of geometrical and loading parameters on the system equilibrium can be assessed.
