An Investigation Of Stress In The Monowall Construction System Subjected To Racking Loads, Louis Alex Kuhlmann

Masters Theses

"Several methods of analysis were employed to investigate the stress conditions of concrete block built in the MONOWALL Construction System, when subjected to racking loads. MONOWALL is a technique of assembling blocks with adhesive rather than conventional portland cement mortar. The analyses used in this study included strain gages on full-scale walls, photoelastic models, and a mathematical solution. Each method of analysis is reported separately in detail and the results compared to each other"--Abstract, page ii.
