The primary retrofit scheme considered was the use of engineered cementitious composite overlays. Shake-table tests were conducted on a 2/3-scale, 3-story, 2-bay, masonry infilled RC frame that had one bottom-story wall retrofitted with engineered cementitious composites. The influence of this retrofit on the performance of the structure was investigated using the experimental observations and results of nonlinear finite element analyses. Furthermore, after walls in the second story of the structure were damaged, they were repaired by injecting epoxy into cracked mortar joints, and strengthened with a glass-fiber reinforced polymer overlay. It has been shown that both retrofit schemes are effective in enhancing the seismic performance of the structure and preventing diagonal shear failures of the RC columns.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9811||ISSN:||07339445||Rights:||© 2013 American Society of Civil Engineers.|
