Abstract

A high percentage of unreinforced load bearing masonry structures exist in many countries, these structures shown to be vulnerable to earthquakes, and exhibited important damages. The failure of each element of structure generates a problem in the load transmission. The seismic evaluation of unreinforced masonry walls is a complicated task, however, several research investigates the ability of reducing their seismic risk and ameliorates their mechanical characteristics by using different materials. The carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites were used in numerous investigations to reinforce masonry walls, it offers significant advantages since the fibers can be externally bonded to the surface without affecting the aesthetics of the structure, and it could improve the strength of the structure. As part of this research, an experimental study was conducted to investigate the seismic behavior of masonry walls reinforced with unidirectional CFRP composites and subjected to in-plane loading. This paper evaluates the in-plane behavior of two groups of masonry walls strengthened with diverse percentage and orientations of CFRP composites.
