Abstract

In order to evaluate the behaviour of resistant masonry elements used for structural purposes, blocks, prisms, wallets, walls and foundation elements experimentally tested. The prisms were made and tested in the Materials Laboratory of the Catholic University while the walls, walls and foundation elements were made and tested in the ITEP. The details of the elements and tests performed are presented below.
