Shake table tests on a masonry structure
Phase 1: unreinforced specimen

A shake table test will be carried out on a full-scale tuff masonry structure. The specimen is made of a U-shaped masonry structure provided with openings and sustaining a timber roof. Natural accelerograms will be applied in horizontal and vertical directions, with increasing scaling factor up to the severe damage of the specimen. A second shake table session will be performed after retrofitting with Composite Reinforced Mortar.
