Abstract
The construction of confined masonry buildings has become a good choice to meet the housing needs of low-income families inbig cities. Despite this, current building codes for such construction allow the use of highly simplified analysis techniques that have hardlychanged in the last 40 years. This paper is based on numerical simulation and discusses the need to combine and improve existing techniquesin finite-element method (FEM) analysis for composite materials, to assess the overall structura...
