Wood and unreinforced masonry construction typically perform very poorly when exposed to high inundation depths over extended periods.
In another word, the system was designed to support the building loads by the roof, upper floor slabs, dead load and lateral loads, such as wind and soil pressure and there are five types of structural masonry namely: plain masonry or unreinforced masonry, reinforced masonry, pre stressed masonry, confined masonry and interlocking block system in construction projects.
For example, in Europe, the used of unreinforced masonry represent about 15 percent to more than 50 percent for new housing construction in low the seismic zone, [9].
Unreinforced masonry buildings in downtown Napa including the historic courthouse and the library suffered major damage, city officials said.
When the earthquake struck, unreinforced masonry gave way; later structures and walls separated from the original; walls cracked and leaned in various directions; heavy additions fell; roofs ripped off; door and window arches collapsed; woodwork tore apart.
The technique, which is low in cost and simple in application, may effectively be used to increase the vertical and lateral load carrying capacities of unreinforced masonry that results in reduction of seismic risk.
These include strengthening buildings, and replacing or reinforcing brick or unreinforced masonry. An example is the Hunter building at Victoria University.
