Analysis Of A Real Damaged Wall

Having examined the four kinds of irregularity, a real wall in a building placed in Avellino County and hit by the 1980 earthquake (Magnitude 6.9) was analyzed. Since no retrofit interventions were made after the seismic event, it was possible to carry out a detailed geometrical, mechanical and load survey. In Figure 16 the irregular wall and the crack pattern are shown.
