Abstract

The paper presents discrete element simulations of the in-plane horizontal shear of planar walls having different bond patterns. The aim of the analysis was to decide whether the shear resistance could be improved by applying patterns containing vertical bricks. The results show that the presence of vertical bricks increases the shear resistance in case of low vertical confining load only, and the length-to-height ratio of the wall also significantly affects the shear resistance.
