Resumé

The behaviour of masonry walls subjected to lateral loads has been studied by means of a large number of special tests. The fracture process has been studied in arder to find the answer to an important question: does masonry show any ductile properties that may justify the application of yield-line theory as a design method for laterally loaded ma sonry walls? From the results of the tests it is concluded that the answer must be in the affirmative. The masonry material shows distinctly ductile properties with respect to forces imposed by lateral loads, and stress-strain relation ships are well described by an elastoplastic model. The fracture criteria, describing which combinations of moments and vertical in-plane forces give rise to failure, appears to be approximately fracture criteria of the Coulomb type.
