Title: RE: Compressive Strength and Allowable Shear for Clay tile wall

Try the Western States Clay Products Association at http://www.brick-wscpa.org/See their "Notes on the Selection, Design and Construction of Reinforced Hollow Clay Masonry" (http://www.brick-wscpa.org/Technical_Publ.html ).

Another source, if you have access to a good technical library, is the Technical Notes on Brick & Tile Construction series published by the Structural Clay Products Institute (formerly at 1520 Eighteenth Street, Washington DC) between 1950 and 1961.

Does anyone have any recommendations or know of any sources of information
for allowable compressive strength and allowable shear stress for an
unreinforced clay tile wall constructed in 1949?
