"Previous investigations have shown that the use of modern retrofit systems can significantly improve the behavior of URM infill walls subjected to variable out-of-plane loads. It has also been shown that the use of externally bonded retrofit systems can greatly reduce the amount of fragmentation and debris scatter that is found to occur in URM walls subjected to high intensity blast loads...The main objective of this study is to investigate, through static testing, the use of modern materials for the purpose of improving the behavior of URM walls subjected to blast loads. This study implemented externally bonded FRP grids and an elastomeric polyurea coating as strengthening materials"--Introduction, page 5.
