An application of the RCW –Reinforced Cut Wall- on a set of four masonry buildings for council housing estate with a total of 43 lofts is presented. The performances of this low-cost base energy dissipation technique has been evaluated with some experimental on-site tests performed on a couple of specimen (40x60x30 cm) subjected to a series of cyclic quasi-static time histories with increasing intensity. Trials show the high properties of self-centering and of wide hysteretic behavior of the RCW. Numerical analyses confirm the mechanical properties and provide parameters to the evaluation of cyclic dissipation properties.

Abstract

An application of the RCW –Reinforced Cut Wall- on a set of four masonry buildings for council housing estate with a total of 43 lofts is presented. The performances of this low-cost base energy dissipation technique has been evaluated with some experimental on-site tests performed on a couple of specimen (40x60x30 cm) subjected to a series of cyclic quasi-static time histories with increasing intensity. Trials show the high properties of self-centering and of wide hysteretic behavior of the RCW. Numerical analyses confirm the mechanical properties and provide parameters to the evaluation of cyclic dissipation properties.
