Lateral Loading Tests on Concrete Block Walls

The paper describes lateral loading tests carried out on six full sized single-leaf blockwork walls. The walls were in three sets, one of each set having its vertical edges simply supported and the other having continuity over its vertical edges. Two different block thicknesses were used. The tops of all the walls were unrestrained. C. Anderson
