Assessment Of Existing Mixed R.C. – Masonry Structures And Strengthening By R.C. Shear Walls

Student: Casoli Davide
Supervisors: Prof Guido Magedes

The present study is carried out following the Italian seismic code (OPCM 3431) procedures, but, up to now there is a lack of indications about the assessment of an existing structure with a different material, taking into account the interaction between the different earthquake resisting systems. This problem is faced through non linear analysis in which the elements are modelled in different ways, in order to understand how the modelling bears on the actual response of the structure.
