Regarding capacity of infill

Post by 9953338602 »

we assign the value for compressive strength (fm) of infill.
Is it compressive strength of masonry prism or it is a diagonal capacity of strut?

As explained in the help of the program. the compressive strength refers to the diagonal capacity of the infill panel, i.e. the diagonal capacity of strut.

Dear sir/ mam,
In the seismostruct software when we are defined fm value in strut parameter. So is this fm value is diagonal capacity of strut (Fm theta) or compressive strength of masonry(fm)?? Little bit confusing term is there.. because compressive strength of masonry from prism test is different value & diagonal capacity of strut is different...so could you please clear it?? Also similar term (Em) modulus of elasticity is dependant on which fm or fm theta value??



Thanks in advance
