Experiment Type: Shake Table
Description: Between January 12 and February 8, 2011, a 3-story, full-scale, reinforced masonry shear-wall specimen was tested on the large outdoor shake table at the University of California at San Diego. The specimen was very strong and stiff, and suffered little damage when subjected to ground motions with intensities exceeding the maximum considered earthquake (MCE) level. Its performance validated the requirements of the 2008 Masonry Standards Joint Committee (MSJC) Code (used throughout the USA) for design and detailing of special reinforced masonry shear walls.

This folder contains all the design details, material properties, pictures, and data obtained during the tests.
