Keywords: accelerations, chimney, cracking, fibre-reinforced polymer, strengthening.
This chapter describes the numerical modelling of industrialmasonry chimneys where seismic forces are considered. A brief description and history of the chimneys is included as are the experimental results obtained from in-situ tests. These results are used to calibrate a numerical model employed to reproduce the seismic behaviour of an industrial masonry chimney according to a response spectrum. Material and structure modelling are explained and details about the seismic calculations provided. Finally, alternative strengthening arrangements using fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) are discussed and conclusions drawn.
