Publication year 2020 Abstract A shaking table experiment was performed to study the influence of several building products on the out-of-plane behavior of load-bearing walls in one-way bending. The products that were investigated are a high-strength mortar (Remix/Strating), a mortar-less dry-stacked masonry system (ClickBrick), a renovation anchor tie system (Fischer), and compressed straw blocks supported by a timber frame (Straw Blocks). The results obtained for the specimen with these products were compared to tests performed on two cavity wall specimen (R1 and R2) constructed from materials typically applied in Dutch masonry buildings. The results show that the test specimen with the ClickBrick dry-stacked system and the specimen with the Fischer renovation anchor have a larger flexibility than specimen R1 and R2. The Remix/Strating specimen with high-strength mortar displayed linear elastic behavior up to larger peak table accelerations than specimen R1 and R2, suggesting an improvement in the damage resistance. The Straw Blocks specimen could not be tested up to failure due to the limitations of the table; linear elastic behavior was observed until PTA = 1.2 g in the ground floor configuration and PTA = 0.7 g in the first floor configuration.
