The increased seismicity due to the exploitation of natural gas in the Groningen region has put many residential buildings in the region at risk of sustaining seismic induced damages. This has prompted many studies on the seismic behavior of the residential buildings, particularly the ones built from unreinforced masonry (URM). One experimental...

Masonry is one of the most commonly used construction materials for residential buildings and historic buildings around the world. Some of these buildings are located at seismic zones, while unreinforced masonry structures are vulnerable to seismic loads. To assess the existing masonry buildings and to design new masonry structures, nonlinear...

This research describes the demand of a Displacement-based approach for the assessment of out-of plane behaviour of one-way vertically-spanning unreinforced masonry (URM) walls of terraced and detached houses in the Groningen Province. One of the most vulnerable components of a typical Dutch unreinforced masonry building subjected to earthquake...

The growing need to understand the behaviour of un-reinforced masonry URM), subjected to<br/>repeated light man-made earthquakes caused by the extraction of gas in the north-eastern part<br/>of The Netherlands has resulted in intense research to determine the exact process of crack<br/>initiation and propagation. The historical masonry buildings...

In the recent years, increasing induced seismic activities have been observed in the northern part of the Netherlands due to gas extraction. These seismic events may cause severe damages to the building stock in this area, which is mainly composed of unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings not designed to withstand seismic loads. An extensive...

Granata, Renato (author)
The out-of-plane behavior of unreinforced masonry walls subjected to lateral loading is a complex structural problem. This thesis focuses on the stability of URM walls in a building system under seismic loads that are comparable to those found in the Groningen scenario. The investigation is carried out by addressing both the physical and the...
