The Strength of Brickwork

In the last twenty-five years large numbers of brick walls and piers have been tested at the Building Research Station. The results of these tests are examined in relation to the design recommendations given in Code of Practice CPIII (1948) “Structural Recommendations for Load-bearing Walls.” As a result, modifications are suggested which lead to a more reasonable distribution of load factor than that obtained by adopting the present Code recommendations.
