The Strength of Some Reinforced Brick Masonry Beams in Bending and in Shear

A FEW tests have been made at the Building Research Station on short span reinforced brick masonry beams, such as might be used for lintels, and the results are thought to be of sufficient interest to justify publication, even though the investigation by itself is not comprehensive enough to warrant any definite pronouncement as to the reliability of this form of construction under all practical conditions.
