Title: Design of unreinforced masonry walls for out-of-plane loading / Craig Robert Willis.
Author: Willis, Craig Robert
Issue Date: 2004
School/Discipline: School of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Abstract: Focuses on behavioural models of masonry walls with a view to improving their accuracy and extending their application. Results include a numerical model and mathematical expressions capable of predicting the key stages of the non-linear load-deflection behaviour of walls subjected to vertical bending and axial loading; new mathematical expressions for horizontal and diagonal bending moment capacities that are dimensionally consistent and account for the beneficial effects of compressive stress; and. Experimental test data for masonry sections subjected to horizontal and diagonal bending, which were used in the development and verification of the new mathematical expressions.
