Abstract

This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation into the strength and level of ductile performance of two reinforced concrete masonry columns and one reinforced clay brick column by Singh [1993]. The results show that strength of reinforced concrete and clay masonry can be predicted by using full cross-section dimensions. Columns constructed from concrete masonry behave in a ductile manner but clay masonry columns behave in a very limited ductile manner.
