A survey of 21 masonry structures was carried out in Kirtipur, Nepal from June 6, 2016 to August 10, 2016. The masonry structures surveyed were constructed using a combination of mud mortar and stones, mud mortar and clay bricks, and cement mortar and clay bricks. The survey was conducted to study typical construction practices and detailing used in masonry structures in Nepal.
The data collected during the survey included structure coordinates, floor plans, plan dimensions, floor heights, wall thicknesses, mortar thicknesses, mortar type, stone/brick sizes, number of floors, photographs, and information on use of seismic banding.
The following information is presented in the parameter column:
- Building ID
- Number of Floors Above Ground
- Average Floor Height
- Average Stone Wall Thickness
- Mortar Type
- Maximum Length between Supports
- Minimum Length between Supports
- Seismic Banding
- Aspect Ratio
