1.1 This test method covers determination of the diagonal tensile or shear strength of 1.2 by 1.2-m (4 by 4-ft) masonry assemblages by loading them in compression along one diagonal (see Fig. 1), thus causing a diagonal tension failure with the specimen splitting apart parallel to the direction of load. 1.2 Annex A1 provides suggestions regarding the determination of the diagonal-tension strength of masonry under combined diagonal-tension and compressive loading. 1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only. 1.4 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Existing Building Code®.
