Paper Title
Adobe construction in rural areas is quite common due to locally available material. In developing countries, the adobe construction is increasing due to its thermal and acoustic properties. Different types of structures have been built in ancient times from earth. From heritage point of view, the adobe construction is of great importance but we cannot ignore its disadvantages due to its mechanical properties such as lower strength of masonry units, lack of resistance to wind and rain. Adobe masonry has shown poor performance in past earthquake. The reason behind that was lower shear and tensile strength. Due to its massive weight of wall and excessive weight from roof, it attracts large forces during ground shaking which it cannot resist and fail abruptly. People are unaware and they are regularly constructing these structures in their areas where seismic hazard is high. To improve the seismic capacity of these adobe structures different schemes had been developed, but in this research we have used Reinforced Concrete (RC) components as confining elements to improve its performance during earthquake. Two models have been tested on shake table, one with vertical columns and beams and the other model with only beams at different level along the height of wall. Comparison of Lateral strength of structure in term of base shear coefficient and stiffness has been made. Addition of vertical columns has increased structural stiffness and structural strength 3.50 times and 5 times respectively that of model with beams only.
