Part of: New Analysis Techniques for Structural Masonry


The behavior of composite masonry walls subjected to inplane loads is a subject that has received little attention during the last few years. The small amount of experimental and analytical research performed on composite masonry has not offered insight into the understanding of interlaminar shearing stresses in the collar joint that are created by the interaction between the two wythes of masonry. Determination of these stresses is quite important for the safe and economic design of composite masonry structures.
