Abstract
The volume offers the proceedings of a two-day workshop focused on the seismic response and performance of masonry infills. Researchers and engineers made a total of sixteen presentations, which are reproduced here, and a number of separate groups convened to discuss the mathematical modelling of masonry infills, overall system behavior, evaluation criteria, and the rehabilitation of existing buildings with masonry infills. Overall, the papers dealt with concrete or clay-unit masonry in concrete or steel frames subjected to static or dynamic, in-plane or out-of-plane seismic forces.
