Abstract: The performance of an interface elastoplastic constitutive model for the analysis of unreinforced masonry structures is evaluated. Both masonry components are discretized aiming at a rational unit-joint model able to describe cracking, slip, and crushing of the material. The model is formulated in the spirit of softening plasticity for tension, shear and compression, with consistent treatment of the intersections defined by these modes. The numerical implementation is based on modern algorithmic concepts such as local and global Newton-Raphson methods, implicit integration of the rate equations and consistent tangent stiffness matrices. The parameters necessary to define the model are derived from microexperiments in units, joints, and small masonry samples. The model is used to analyze masonry shear-walls and is capable of predicting the experimental collapse load and behaviour accurately. Detailed comparisons between experimental and numerical results permit a clear understanding of the walls structural behavior, flow of internal forces and redistribution of stresses both in the pre- and post-peak regime.

Abstract: A large-scale five-story precast concrete building constructed to 60 percent scale was tested under simulated seismic loading as the culmination of the 10-year PRESSS (Precast Seismic Structural Systems) research program. The building comprised four different ductile structural frame systems in one direction of response and a jointed structural wall system in the orthogonal direction. The test structure was subjected to seismic input levels equivalent to at least 50 percent higher than those required for UBC (Uniform Building Code) Seismic Zone 4. The behavior of the structure was extremely satisfactory, with only minimal damage in the shear wall direction, and no significant strength loss in the frame direction, despite being taken to drift levels up to 4.5 percent, more than 100 percent higher than the design drift level. The test validated the Displacement-Based Design (DBD) approach used to determine the required strength and confirmed the low damage and low residual drift expected of the building.
