Experiment-9: Cyclic Tests of Cantilever CMU Wall Specimen UT-PBS-12G with Aspect Ratio Equal to 1.0 and Green CMU Blocks
Experiment Type: Large Scale
Description: Specimen UT-PBS-12G was 96-in. wide and 96-in. high (aspect ratio equal to 1.0) with #4 bars every 16 in. vertically and horizontally and axial load ratio, P/(fm Ag), equal to 0.10. The dowels extended 16 in. (two courses) from the base of the wall segment. The expected moment capacity of Specimen UT-PBS-12 was 858 ft-kips, equivalent to a lateral load of 98.06 kips.
