Publication abstract (click to enlarge):

An innovative testing set-up was developed in order to perform quasi-static out-of-plane tests of full-scale IM walls with airbags which was lately upgraded with pneumatic actuators. Both tests setups were described and discussed throughout the manuscript.

PROBLEM

Quasi-static Cyclic Out-of-plane tests presents high level of difficulties due to the setups complexities and since it i
