    Abstract

    This paper summarizes the preliminary findings of a research project on performance-based design of masonry and masonry veneer. The project includes quasi-static testing of clay masonry veneer with wood-stud and concrete masonry backings; shaking-table tests of concrete masonry and wood-stud wall segments with clay masonry veneer; and shaking-table tests of a full-scale wood-stud structure with clay masonry veneer and a concrete masonry structure with clay masonry veneer; and nonlinear analytical modeling. Based on the test results, recommendations are presented for refinements to current seismic design and detailing provisions for masonry and masonry veneer.
