Abstract: The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of connector density on reinforced masonry wallettes. Firstly, the properties of bricks and mortar are determined. Six densities of connectors and unreinforced specimens are tested in diagonal compression. For each density at least seven probes are tested. Results show that no difference (p ≤ 0.05, means that results are only 5% likely or less) is found for connector density, concluding that connector density is not relevant to increase the shear capacity of reinforced masonry. However, all reinforced wallettes show a ductile failure.
