|Abstract:||This paper presents the results to date of an experimental testing programme of unreinforced masonry (URM) walls subject to cyclic in-plane shear loading. The primary aim of this experimental program is to obtain force-displacement relationships for URM walls with openings and to understand the influence of wall geometry and vertical precompression on in-plane wall failure modes. The experimental programme consists of testing 12 full-scale wall specimens. These 12 walls consist of three geometrical configurations, two levels of pre-compression, and two repeats for each wall. To date, 10 of these 12 combinations have been successfully tested with the two remaining tests being repeats of walls previously tested.|
