partially grouted reinforced masonry shear walls

Post by omeligy »

I am asking if it is possible to model partially grouted reinforced masonry shear walls buildings using SeismoStruct

No, there is no partially grouted masonry section in SeismoStruct.
The current masonry sections can model either reinforced or unreinforced masonry walls or spandrels.

No, the infill panel element is good only for modelling infills. Not for loads bearing masonry walls.
