Abstract

Recent developments related to approaches and mechanisms for seismic isolation of masonry infill walls and brick veneer walls from structural frames are mentioned. A system called Seismic Infill Wall Isolator Subframe (SIWIS) is discussed. SIWIS is a seismic isolation system for masonry infill walls that would work like a fuse. It maintains a tight fit and allows desirable participation of the infill wall in lateral load resistance under wind and low seismic activities. However, it would isolate the infill wall from the frame under moderate to strong (damaging) earthquakes. A recently developed multi-hazard resistant brick veneer wall concept is also introduced. A Panelized Brick Veneer with Steel Stud wall system (PBVSS) has also been developed to accommodate seismic induced in-plane lateral movement of the building through bearing and lateral connections or through a rocking mechanism. Besides resistance to wind and seismic load effects, the PBVSS can also be designed to enhance impact resistance performance. The ' conceptual designs of SIWIS and PBVSS systems are discussed in this paper.
