Evaluation of the out-of-plane strength of infilled frames is a matter of fundamental importance.

Abstract

Evaluation of the out-of-plane strength of infilled frames is a matter of fundamental importance. In fact, by observing post-earthquake damage, it has been noted that infills subject to in-plane and out-of-plane inertial forces may achieve collapse due to out-of-plane actions. This mode of collapse may result quite dangerous to the people in the proximity of a building subjected an earthquake. The possibility to perform an accurate safety assessment is fundamental to prevent this type of failure. Different expressions for evaluating the out-of-plane resistance of infilled frames are available in the literature. These are based on analytical formulations validated on the basis of too limited or too large experimental datasets. This implies that these expressions are often conflicting, showing good reliability in some cases and less in others. In order to overcome this drawback, this paper provides the definition of a hybrid database obtained by merging existing experimental test data with additional ones obtained from numerical simulations by means of a refined FE micro-model. A new data-driven empirical expression for estimating the OOP resistance of infilled frames has been developed based on the hybrid database so developed. The new expression has the advantage of taking into account the aspect ratio of the filled frame, the influence of vertical loads, and the influence of the out-of-plane load application mode. Finally, validation tests are performed against experimental and numerical samples.
