Abstract

The mantle of shotcrete (gunite) which is applied to one or both sides of masonry walls reinforces the masonry and influences the dynamic behaviour of the masonry as it changes the mass of the structure and increases the out-of-plane and the in-plane stiffness of the masonry walls. The research of this composite material's behaviour to both static and dynamic loading cases, is the subject of this work. Linear elastic mechanical behaviour of both masonry and gunite is considered throughout this paper. The finite element method is used. First the static and dynamic response based on the res
