Destructive Tests for the Determination of Masonry Performance

Abstract:

Article Preview

Several masonry panels are studied by means of destructive tests such as compressive, diagonal compression and shear-compression tests. The experimental research allows to characterize the mechanical properties of masonry walls in order to assess the masonry performance. Moreover, a brief recall of the most important experimental progress is presented in order to understand the state of the art of the research in the field of destructive tests.
