Analysis of different interface treatments between masonry of AAC blocks and reinforced concrete structure after uniaxial compression strength test
Keywords:Brick, Mortar, Deformation, Metal reinforcement, Bond resistance
Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) masonry is widely used in civil construction but requires further investigation. Hence, this experimental study evaluated three types of interface treatment between the reinforced concrete structure and AAC masonry, in scale, after a uniaxial compression resistance test. The types of interface treatment considered are reinforcement with steel bars, with rough polymeric cementitious mortar, and without treatment. The maximum load capacity, displacements, and occurrence of cracks were analysed. The results showed that the maximum individual load capacity did not significantly differ among the examined groups. However, the analysis of the displacements and cracks showed that the group with steel reinforcement had the smallest displacements and largest cracks. This behaviour is owing to the greater solidarity of forces conferred by steel reinforcement.
