Paper Title:
Experimental Study on Ductility and Dissipative Capacity of AAC Block Load Bearing Walls
  Abstract

Based on the experimental investigation of quasi-static test of 6 AAC block walls and obtain the load-displacement experimental results, the deformation behavior and dissipative capacity of the walls due to different height to width ratios and vertical pressing stresses are studied and analyzed, the comparisons and analyses with other block walls’ deformation behavior are also carried out. The results indicate that AAC block walls’ dissipative capacity is directly proportional with vertical pressing stresses and the deformation behavior is otherwise, the diversification of height to width ratios can change the breaking form of block walls and affect on ductility and dissipative capacity. The ductility of AAC block walls is better than other block walls.
