Abstract

Under the action of external loading, usually during a seismic excitation, a masonry structure enters the range of non-linear material behaviour. The result is the formation of permanent damage, plastification, cracks and other faults in the structure. The application of various strengthening techniques leads to composite structures with different dynamic response from the original. Materials with different non-linear behaviour must work together in order to form an integral structure. The influence of the different strengthening techniques on the dynamic
