Abstract

In this study, three geometrically similar frames, having di-erent configurations of masonry infills, has been investigated. The frames have been modelled in OpenSees simulation platform, utilising material and section properties available in its library. This paper mainly focusses on studying the e-ect of masonry infills in the RC frames and its hysteretic response during an earthquake event, where it is expected to go into the non-linear range. Static non-linear cyclic pushover analysis has been carried out to predict the seismic performance of the study frames. A detailed discussion on the modelling, hysteretic response, lateral strength and ductility of the RC frames with masonry infills has been presented.
