with best regard

I have a question about INFILLED FRAMES (MASONRY INFILLS) EXAMPLE 1 – One storey, single bay infilled frame (Crisafulli) in CHAPTER 4. Software verifications (comparison with experimental results)

>>>>> Shear curve parameters difined as (inf shear response curve): shear bond strength = 50 kPa, friction coefficient = 0.2, maximum shear resistance = 200 kPa in the infill modelling with the FE analysis program SeismoStruct.

Whereas in experimental data of this example in the thesis of Crisafulli (1997), these values are different and are as follows:

shear bond strength = 410 kPa, friction coefficient = 0.7, maximum shear resistance = 800 kPa.

What is the connection between defined values in EXAMPLE1 and the experimental data?

Yours sincerely
