Abstract

Present study focuses on the seismic performance evaluation of masonry infilled reinforced concrete (MIRC) buildings utilizing appropriate infill properties. Masonry infill properties were determined through analyses of an infilled RC test model in Applied Element Method (AEM) under in-plane cyclic load and were utilized for the time history dynamic analysis of an MIRC building considering different AEM models, i.e., soft story, retrofitted soft story, infills in all floors and RC frames neglecting stiffness contribution of infills. The analytical results revealed: 1) the unexpected soft story column failure compared to the similar RC frame, 2) the inability of infills to improve the seismic performance of the surrounding RC frames, 3) the effectiveness of steel plate jacketing for preventing soft story failure and, 4) the effect of overhead water tanks on the seismic behaviour of RC buildings.

N2 - Present study focuses on the seismic performance evaluation of masonry infilled reinforced concrete (MIRC) buildings utilizing appropriate infill properties. Masonry infill properties were determined through analyses of an infilled RC test model in Applied Element Method (AEM) under in-plane cyclic load and were utilized for the time history dynamic analysis of an MIRC building considering different AEM models, i.e., soft story, retrofitted soft story, infills in all floors and RC frames neglecting stiffness contribution of infills. The analytical results revealed: 1) the unexpected soft story column failure compared to the similar RC frame, 2) the inability of infills to improve the seismic performance of the surrounding RC frames, 3) the effectiveness of steel plate jacketing for preventing soft story failure and, 4) the effect of overhead water tanks on the seismic behaviour of RC buildings.
