Abstract:
Unreinforced masonry is vulnerable under loads resulting from seismic activity or blast. This session includes presentations on ACI 440.7R-10, the newly published ACI guideline for strengthening URM walls, and a forthcoming publication on blastresistant components retrofitted with FRP. Additionally, there is a state-of-the-art review on mechanically fastened FRP strengthening systems that uses a new engineered FRP that can provide immediate strength without the need for surface preparation.
