Stress-strain relationships of brick masonry under uniaxial compression and tension
XIAO Yao;DI Xinxin;HUANG He;Earthquake Administration of Liaoning Province;
Brick masonry is widely used as building materials, the uniaxial compressive and tensile characteristics and stress-strain relationships of the brick masonry have been studied by a large number of laboratory tests. It is found that the stress-strain relationships of brick masonry are similar to that of concrete, which provides a basis for developing the stress-strain relationship model of brick masonry based on that of concrete.In this study, several different stress-strain relationships of the brick masonry are compared. By the comparison and analysis, a brick masonrystress-strain relationship model under the uniaxial compression and tensile loads is recommended based on the Chinese concrete stress-strain relationship model, and the parameters used in the model are not only easily obtained by tests, but also are often specified in the code.
