Methods of test for ancillary components for masonry - Part 6: Determination of tensile and compressive load capacity and load displacement characteristics of wall ties (single end test)
|Publication Date:||3 October 2012|
|ICS Code (Masonry):||91.080.30|
This European Standard specifies a method for determining the tensile and compressive load capacity and load displacement characteristics of wall ties screwed, nailed, grouted or otherwise attached to frame elements or to inner leaf materials. The test is intended for ties for connecting masonry leaves to frame structures and to the inner leaves of cavity walls other than by embedding the inner connection in a mortar joint.
