Proceedings of a session of Structures Congress '86, held in New Orleans, Louisiana, September 15-18, 1986.

This collection contains eight state-of-the-art papers focusing on the advanced analysis techniques that have been and can be employed to predict the behavior of structural masonry.

Topics include:

  • load-deflection behavior of masonry veneer and steel stud wall systems,
  • corner cracking in brick masonry veneer,
  • techniques for numerical modeling of two-story concrete block buildings for resistance to lateral forces,
  • development of a nonlinear dynamic constitutive model for masonry
  • loss of prestress in post-tensioned hollow masonry walls,
  • prediction of ultimate failure loads and estimation of normal and shear stresses in collar joints of composite walls resulting from creep and temperature, and
  • development of failure-criterion for blockwork masonry subjected to off-axis bending.
