In the present experimental study, six single-story, single-bay half-scale masonry-infilled reinforced concrete (RC) frames were tested to evaluate the performance of fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) strengthening under bidirectional loading. Five of these infilled RC frames were strengthened using different configurations, by varying the mode of fabric application, the presence of anchors, and the orientation of the fabric. Two methods of fabric application were employed in the present study: direct application and sandwich application. A unique loading protocol was used for the bidirectional loading of specimens which consisted of successive application of slow cyclic drifts for in-plane loading and shake table–generated ground motion for out-of-plane loading. The strengthened infills safely withstood story drifts of over 2.20%, preserving structural integrity without jeopardizing out-of-plane stability. The direct mode of fabric application exhibited superior performance with better bond characteristics and stress redistribution between the frame and infills. The mechanical anchors were effective in limiting the separation of infills from the frame, resulting in an enhanced bidirectional response. Orthogonal orientation of the fabric with respect to bed joints was more effective than oblique orientation.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
