Abstract:

Floodproofing individual homes is an important aspect of the total solution of flood damage reduction. This report gives insight into the structural resistance of brick-veneer walls subjected to hydrostatic water loading. There are many variables affecting the response of a brick-veneer wall therefore, the approach of this study was to obtain limited experimental data by testing three walls, analyze these data, and compare them to analytical solutions.
