Publication abstract (click to enlarge):

This paper reports an experimental campaign carried out at the LESE at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto in order to study the out-of-plane behaviour of IM walls, and the influence of the previous in-plane drift in their out-of-plane response. For this, three full-scale infill panels were constructed and were subjected to out-of-plane monotonic and cyclic loading, with and w
