Abstract: This Civil and Architectural Engineering Senior Design Project Report analyzes retrofit techniques proposed to brace recently exposed sidewalls adjacent to collapsed row homes in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The project also includes details for retrofitting the foundation wall. Steel was considered for the sidewall, but timber was chosen for ease of installation and low material cost. The analysis of the bracing design followed the un-reinforced masonry section of the ACI 530 code (ACI 530 limits outward deflection of masonry walls to 0.7% of the wall height). The report recommends grout injection for the foundation wall retrofit and incorporates a drainage system into the final below grade retrofit of the party wall.
