INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT OF REINFORCED MASONRY BUILDINGS

Objective


On the basis of the research work carried out within the project, it was proved that reinforced masonry is a construction system which may offer sufficient strength against normal actions, as well as against seismic actions, provided that it is conceived and designed appropriately and that adequate materials are used. Furthermore, reinforced masonry can ensure satisfactory habitability conditions, if made using materials having properties similar to those investigated within the project. Finally, reinforced masonry is durable enough, provided to course that it is appropriately constructed (using materials that offer a favourable environment to the embedded reinforcement) and maintained.
