Title: Test of a Post-Tensioned Concrete Masonry Wall
Author(s): S. Rosenhaupt, F. D. Beresford, and F. A. Blakey
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 829-837
Keywords: concrete blocks; concretes; masonry; post-tensioning; prestressed concrete; research; walls.
Abstract:A test of a full sized post-tensioned concrete masonry wall is reported. The results of the test are compared with the design based on a truss analogy and with an analysis as a two-dimensional stress problem using McHenry’s lattice analogy. Except in the neighborhood of a doorway in the wall, agreement between experimental results and both the truss and lattice analogy solutions was very good.
