In his talk, Randolph Langenbach will begin with his recent work in Nepal after the 2015 Gorkha earthquake, covering the performance of historic masonry buildings in Kathmandu. He will describe a technique called “Gabion Bands”, which provides a means for people to rebuild their houses with materials readily at hand. He will then go on to explore the problems of moment frame structures with walls of weak masonry infill. He will describe the efforts to separate the masonry infill walls from the frames, to the more recent recognition of the need to embrace these walls as a strategic part of the engineering of these buildings. This discussion will include his concept called “Armature Crosswalls.”
