Abstract

The responses of the brick masonry infilled reinforced concrete (RC) frame structures under
seismic excitation were quite complex due to highly nonlinear of their composite behavior and interaction
between RC frame structure and it brick masonry infill. The presence of the brick masonry infills can greatly
improve the seismic performance of RC frame structures by increasing their lateral strength and stiffness,
respectively. However, when the RC frame structure is only partially infilled with the brick masonry wall, the
responses of the RC frame structure becomes completely different. In this study, a series experimental was
conducted to evaluate the seismic performance of RC frame structures with partially infilled by the brick
masonry. Three of 1/4 reduce-scaled of RC frame specimens, i.e. a bare RC frame, a fully brick infilled RC
frame and a partially brick infilled RC frame has been experientially tested under lateral static reversed cyclic
loading. Experimentally results have shown that existence of the partially brick masonry infilled in the RC
frame structure play a significant role in damaging of the RC column.
