Re: Masonry infill walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

If the terra cotta is hollow clay tile blocks, specimens can be tested in 
accordance with ASTM C112 to determine whether they comply with ASTM C34 for 
Structural Clay Load-bearing Wall Tile.  Compliance would indicate that the 
infills probably have useful structural strength as infill bracing elements.
