Abstract: 

Ultimate shear strength in earthquake resistant masonry walls has especial importance. Horizontal loading in masonry walls (parallel to the Joints) causes horizontal shear failure between mortar and brick or diagonal tension failure. In masonry shear connection naturally is independent of mortar strength but perforated bricks because of mechanical shear keys with mortar cause increase in shear strength (at least in case of low vertical pressure on masonry). Masonry strength against horizontal shear failure would increase directly with vertical loading on brick and mortar. So in the case of high vertical pressure failure is due to diagonal tension and above the key effects they are not very significant.
