Test results from about 70 large concrete masonry wall panels, 6 x 91/z ft. and 50 wallettes, 2 2/3 x 4 ft, of 29 types. The variables studied included: type of aggregate, design of units, strength of units, type of mortar and mortar joints, wall thickness, action of composite walls of brick and concrete units, axial and eccentric loading. The paper discusses test results, code requiremens, and general performance of masonry walIs in building construction.
