Paper Title:
Experimental Research on Shear Performance of Reinforced Block Short-Leg Masonry Shear Wall
  Abstract

The pseudo-static tests of two “T” cross-section samples were carried out to study the shear performance of reinforced block short-leg masonry shear wall (RBSMSW), under constant vertical loading. Crack propagation and failure pattern, bearing capacity, load-deformation relationship and energy-dissipation capability were studied, which it identified the parameter values in this experiment and validated the corresponding formulas that can be used in practical design. Also, experimental analysis verifies that both failure mode and ductility of RBSMSW are similar to those of the reinforced concrete short-leg shear wall (RCSSW).
