Paper Title
A Review Study on Performance of Stone Masonry Building Under Earthquake
Many masonry structures collapsed or were severely damaged during the recent destructive earthquakes occurred in worldwide. This paper evaluates the review study of various researchers on seismic performance of masonry buildings during the earthquakes and behaviour of masonry buildings under seismic action. The traditional masonry buildings without any earth quake resisting features have proved to be the most vulnerable to earthquake forces and had suffered maximum damage in past earthquakes. Therefore, it is necessary that realistic stone masonry houses as are being constructed in rural and hilly regions should be tested dynamically for evaluating various seismic strengthening measures in order to prove their effectiveness. Most of masonry buildings were formed with random or coursed stone and mud brick walls without any reinforcement. Many of these buildings were damaged or had collapsed. The cracking and failure patterns of the buildings are examined and interpreted according to current provisions for earthquake resistance of masonry structures. Masonry being a brittle material will undergo sudden failure under lateral loads causing large amount of damage to human life and property. Therefore to make the masonry ductile it has to be reinforced with a material that gives warning before failure and resists damage. The present paper makes a review on seismic performance of reinforced masonry structures.
