ABSTRACT

In this study, behaviors of wall samples produced from solid batch bricks were
investigated under horizontal loads using various types of bond. Fort his aim six
samples that contain three samples from each one, whose dimensions are 60*60 cm,
were prepared. Hatch bond and running bond types were used while preparing the
samples. Produced masonry wall samples were failure using experimental technique of
standard shear strengths. The observed behavior of the experimental samples and the
cracks occurred are studied, horizontal load-displacement and shear stress graphs are
platted. A numerical model is analyzed using the ANSYS software and the results are
compared with the experimental ones.

Keywords: Masonry, Bonding styles, Wall strength, Experimental study
