Abstract

Masonry infill walls are widely known to increase lateral stiffness of the structure and for this reason it is accepted all over the world. This paper presents a review work on performance of infill framed structures that were damaged during several earthquakes. Study of behavior of damaged building during different earthquakes in world has been carried out. The mentioned earthquakes substantially caused damaged to the RC buildings. The RC buildings were damaged primarily because of improper design and reinforcement detailing at the design phase and improper workmanship and quality control at the construction phase. The main objective of this paper is to describe and analyze the failure patterns observed in reinforced concrete frame buildings with masonry infill walls and without masonry infill walls all over the world.
