Seismic analysis of ordinary and reinforced masonry buildings with linear and non – linear static methods


This document is born from the partnership with EUCENTRE of Pavia (European Centre for Training and Research in Earthquake Engineering) and focuses on seismic analysis of some types of residential buildings with load-bearing masonry in expanded clay blocks. Here are evaluated the performances given from expanded clay blocks solutions with two methods of analysis (linear and non – linear static methods). The document also focuses on the comparison between ordinary load bearing masonry and reinforced load bearing masonry.
