Experimental Research on Shear Strength of Recycled Concrete Block Masonry
Recycled concrete hollow blocks are made with recycled fine aggregates and recycled coarse aggregates, so recycled block is a kind of green environmental material and can be used for masonry structure. Shear property is one main mechanical property of recycled concrete hollow block masonry. From the shear test of masonry, the shear strength has been researched. At the same time the rule calculated results and test results are compared and analyzed, conclude the design value of shear strength in this paper. The test results show that recycled concrete block masonry has better shear strength, so it can be used for wall material.
