Title

Confinement of Clay Masonry Columns with SRG

Abstract

In this study, the behavior of clay masonry columns confined by steel reinforced grout (SRG) composite with a natural hydraulic lime mortar is investigated. An experimental study was carried out to understand the behavior of masonry prisms with a square cross-section confined by SRG composite jackets subjected to a monotonic concentric compressive load. Test parameters considered in this study are the density of steel fibers and column corner radius. The effectiveness of the confinement is studied in terms of load-bearing capacity with respect to unconfined columns.
