Experiment-16: Cyclic Tests of Cantilever CMU Wall Specimen UT-W-19 with Aspect Ratio Equal to 4.50 at UT Austin
Experiment Type: Large Scale
Description: Specimen UT-W-19 was detailed according to the requirements of the 2008 MSJC Code. It has a height of 12 ft and a plan length of 2.67 ft (aspect ratio 4.5), required prescriptive reinforcement for a 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.
