Shear Strength of Brick Masonry Wall Elements Without Opening

Abstract

Shear Strength Of Brick Masonry Wall Elements Without Opening civil project report  and aspect ratio in wall plays great role in strength and stiffness of wall and overall behavior of building. Without understanding effect of openings and aspect ratio on strength, stiffness and behavior of wall it can be dangerous to use such practices in construction of building. In this research study, effect of opening and aspect ratio on overall behavior of building has been studied. This numerical study has been done by considering a RC framed brick infill wall using Applied Element method.

Conclusion

This Shear Strength Of Brick Masonry Wall Elements Without Opening civil project report research study has been done for the particular Aspect ratio and openings in wall. Aspect ratio and openings in wall plays important role in providing stiffness and strength to the wall. From this study it can be concluded that if aspect ratio is less i.e. if height is less than the length of the wall then wall stiffness and strength is much higher because under displacement is very less due to less height and shear is predominant in this case.
