Experimental campaigns are a key tool for the evaluation of the behaviour of Masonry Infilled Reinforced Concrete (RC) frames. The case of masonry infills in RC frames is also a regional feature making the homogenous classification for a database a real challenge. This first attempt of a Masonry Infill Database (MID) includes a preliminary selection of experimental tests carried out on models of masonry-infilled RC frames under quasi-static or pseudo-dynamic loading. Each test is characterized in order to include in a homogenous framework all the relevant aspects of different experimental campaigns for easy access to the data for future applications. A Damage Classification is introduced, valid for both solid infill panels and for infill with openings. Finally, all mono-tonic backbones are fitted with a force-displacement piecewise linear approximation for future applications in Performance Based Earthquake Engineering
