Shake-Table Tests of a Two-Story Reinforced Masonry Shear Wall System

A full-scale, two-story, fully-grouted, reinforced masonry shear wall system will be tested on the NEES outdoor shake table at the Englekirk S-tructural Engineering Center of UCSD. This will be the second and also the last structure to be tested on the shake table in a research project sponsored by NIST under an ARRA Measurement Science and Engineering Grant. The project is to study the seismic performance of fully-grouted reinforced masonry shear-wall structures, and to develop improved design methodologies, detailing requirements, and analytical methods for the design and performance assessment of these structures...
