Abstract. In this chapter, a typical three-story steel frame with masonry infill walls is studied for retrofit. After a short introduction on the on behavior and damage of infill walls as one of the major structural members, the example building is studied and the vulnerable parts including the beams, columns, and beam-column connections and infill walls are determined.

A dynamic analysis is required to determine the response of the structure in order to determine its adequacy to the comfort criteria. Creep, Shrinkage, and Temperature effects: In very tall buildings, the cumulative vertical movements due to creep and shrinkage may cause distress in the structure and induce forces into horizontal elements.

This course introduces you to structural design criteria for the design of buildings.

Included is technical guidance for buildings constructed of concrete, masonry, steel and wood. Criteria are also included for pre-engineered metal buildings, slabs on grade, metal decks and welding. To this end, this revision of the ""ASCE Standard Guideline for Structural Condition Assessment of Existing Buildings"" (a replacement of ASCE ) provides the design community with guidelines for assessing the structural conditions of existing buildings constructed of combinations of material, including concrete, masonry, metals, and wood.5/5(1).

The procedures described are those that will test the behavior of segments of wall construction under conditions representative of those encountered in service. Performance criteria based on data from those procedures can ensure structural adequacy and service life.
