Abstract: This paper deals with the numerical and experimental researches on the out-of-plane behavior of un-reinforced masonry walls strengthened with ferrocement. The material parameters considered are the volume fraction of reinforcement and the loading area. The walls subjected to concentrated load failed in punching shear. Under uniformly distributed load, the walls failed due to the tensile rupture of the masonry units. Furthermore, a numerical model was proposed to simulate the experimental results. The ferrocement is modeled as a composite material with linear strain hardening followed by ideal plasticity. The proposed model simulates the load-deflection behavior of the strengthened wall well.
