Title: Strengthening of Old Masonry Walls for out-of-Plane Seismic Loading with a CFRP Reinforced Render

Abstract

This paper presents part of the results of an experimental campaign for the development of a strengthening technique, aimed at retrofitting old buildings by the application of exterior reinforcing render layers to their masonry walls. The experimental campaign comprised tests with out-of-plane loading on both strengthened and non-strengthened masonry walls. The strengthening layer material, hereby designated as CFRP (Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer) reinforcing render, is an innovative material for the seismic retrofitting of masonry walls. The reinforcing render material consists of a lime-based mortar reinforced with a carbon fibre mesh, applied on one or both facings of a masonry wall. This solution was developed to provide the masonry wall with improved mechanical properties, while respecting the main principles for a proper rehabilitation of old buildings.
