Confined Masonry: Theoretical Fundamentals, Experimental Test, Finite Element Models, And Future Uses, Lan T. Nguyen
Civil Engineering Graduate Theses & Dissertations
Inspired from the MS thesis that investigated the underlying relationship between the implicit level of risk accepted for natural hazards and the level of economic, social and political development of Haiti, a developing country, this dissertation focuses structurally on the use of low-rise confined masonry (CM) buildings in natural hazard consideration areas. The research emphasizes the responses of the CM shear wall structure as a whole, as well as the material conditions in detail. Key findings are presented from experimental tests, computational modeling procedures, analytical results, and reliability analysis for CM structures followed with the summary of the behavior of ...
