Abstract
The masonry tensile strength and shear modulus play a key role in the definition of the shear capacity of masonry structures. These properties are often determined experimentally by means of the diagonal compression test on square walls, which is regulated by the ASTM E519 standard. In spite of its wide use, the interpretation of the test is still controversial and no universal criterion exists on how to derive the masonry mechanical properties from the wall overall strength. Aiming to contribut...
