Behavior of Unbounded Post- Tensioned Masonry Walls

Masonry is probably the oldest and one of the most widely used man-made construction materials in the world (Ganz 1990; Bean Popehn and Schultz 2003; Drysdale and Hamid 2005). The major advantage of masonry is that in terms of raw materials it is highly available worldwide and in terms of construction it is easy and economical.
