Title: Load Tests of Patterned Concrete Masonry Walls
Author(s): R. O. Hedstrom
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 1265-1286
Abstract:Laboratory tests were performed to determine com- pressive and flexural strengths of concrete block walls laid in nine different patterns. Flexurol tests were mode on wall panels subjected to bending across o vertical and a horizontal span. Two types of mortar were used. Rein- forcing steel was included in some of the walls tested in flexure across o horizontal span. The performance of the walls laid in the various patterns is compared to that of standard running bond.
