|Experiment Type:||Large Scale|
|Description:||Specimen UT-W-15 was detailed according to the requirements of the 2008 MSJC Code. It has a height of 12 ft and a plan length of 4 ft (aspect ratio 3.0), required prescriptive reinforcement for an Intermediate Reinforced Masonry Shear Wall (2008 MSJC Code), and a normalized axial load ratio P / (fm Ag) of 0.10. The vertical reinforcement ratio was 0.0072, with No. 6 reinforcing bars at 8 in. (every cell); and the horizontal reinforcement ratio was 0.0016, with No. 4 bars at 16 in. The specimen used cement-lime mortar conforming to the proportion specification for Type S of ASTM C270, and grout conforming to the strength specification of ASTM C476.
