Paper Title
Seismic Capacity Assessment of Confined Hollow Concrete Block Masonry Buildings
This paper presents experimental study on the seismic response of a 12x10x11 (365 cm x 305 cm x 335 cm), size full-scale model building constructed with Confined, partially reinforced / grouted, hollow concrete block masonry (CHCBM), in Earthquake Engineering Centre (EEC), at UET, Peshawar. Construction quality was kept as per common practice in the field. Geometrical and architectural details of the model were kept similar to the previous models, constructed with Unreinforced Brick Masonry (URM), confined brick masonry (CBM) and unconfined solid concrete block masonry (USCBM), so that comparison of the test data could be made. The model was tested under quasi-static cyclic test as used during testing of the previous models. Based on test data, envelope curves and bilinear idealized curves were drawn according to both Magenes-Calvi 1997 and Elnashai 2008, methods. Different performance levels i.e. Immediate Occupancy (IO), Life Safety (LS) and Collapse Prevention (CP) were evaluated based on both methods. Damage pattern and force-deformation behavior of CHCBM building was compared with previous models. Similarly values of Response modification factor (R), Displacement Ductility (µD) and Displacement amplification factor (Cd) were calculated and compared with the previous studies which showed that confined hollow concrete block masonry (CHCBM) building was ductile and structurally integrated under earthquake loading.
