In this project, the behaviour of brick masonry under various states of stress is discussed. These stress states include: axial compression, eccentric compression, flexure and in-plane shear. In addition, the creep and shrinkage characteristics of brickwork and the effect of grouting on the axial capacity of brick masonry assemblages are investigated on a preliminary basis. Comprehensive literature reviews and results of accompanying series of tests are presented and discussed.
