Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther report

Abstract

The workshop has discussed six subject areas through presentations and open discussions. (1) Methods for seismic design of new masonry construction and strengthening of existing buildings. (2) Behavior and response of brick masonry structures and measures for mitigating damage. (3) Behavior and response of block masonry structures and measures for mitigating potential damage. (4) Earthquake simulation tests of model block structures. (5) Evaluation and strengthening techniques for brick and block structures. (6) Damage prediction and reliability analysis for masonry structures.
