Abstract
As one of the main historical construction materials, masonry is abundant among the architectural heritage of earthquake-prone areas of the Mediterranean countries. Earthquake mitigation approaches are now focusing on strengthening solutions based on compatible and environmentally friendly repair materials, such as Textile Reinforced Mortar (TRM). These solutions have recently evidenced their efficiency to improve the in-plane lateral strength and displacement capacity of masonry buildings, whic...
