The aim of this workshop is to teach post graduate students about the various national and international practices used to evaluate the efficiency of strengthening measure for masonry structure. The participant will learn about various high-end scientific equipment used for material testing and for application of displacement control static and slow-cyclic lateral load tests such as servo-control loading devices and computer-based data acquisition systems. Participants will study about various aspects of experimental investigation, such as test planning and design, model fabrication, loading system, sensors, data acquisition, processing and interpretation. Further, the demonstrations and hands on training will be given on analytical/numerical tools used for detailed understanding of strengthening schemes used for masonry.
