We have finished testing a one-storey masonry building subjected to dynamic horizontal forces in two stages: the first without reinforcement until reaching a certain level of damage to the walls, and in the second stage the walls were reinforced with TRM.

Although the data collected is still being processed, the results after reinforcement are encouraging and clearly show an improvement in the building’s performance, in spite of the high level of damage it received in the first stage.

This project was financed by the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness and received collaboration from: MAPEI, CALSENS and the Grupo Puma.
