Publication abstract (click to enlarge):

This thesis presents both dynamical in-plane and out-of-plane tests on single bay and single storey steel structure with masonry infill. Two frames were connected by a slab and steel truss.


Static testing, in- and out-of-plane, is presently being performed on clay tile infilled frame to obtain more information on structural characteristics of these these types of systems. T

Test setup: Accelemeter readings from the third out-of-plane seismic test
