A report from a project funded by a 2019 EEFIT Research Grant winner.

This report presents the results of an experimental campaign and numerical analyses aimed at characterising the cyclic shear behaviour of masonry triplets with mortar-rubber joints under both monotonic and cyclic loading.  

The main application of the rubber joints is in enhancing the performance of masonry-infilled reinforced concrete frames under both in-plane and out-of-plane loading.
