Abstract
This paper presents the results of an experimental program carried out in the laboratory to evaluate the shear strength of aerial lime mortar brickwork. Masonry triplets and walls were tested after one year from their construction by adopting two different testing methods. The first approach consisted in the shear tests of masonry triplets, whereas the second technique was based on core drilling from walls of 90 mm diameter cylindrical specimens to be subjected to Brazilian tests with varying in...
