The present study is focused on shear bond strength of brick masonry for different normal stress. Toward this objective brick masonry, triplets have been cast using different types of mortar. Shear bond strength is obtained using triplet test. The experimental investigation revealed that shear strength increases with the applied normal compressive stress up to a certain value. At higher values of normal stress, the brick develops tension and the increase in shear bond strength is slowed down. Further increase in normal stress leads to masonry failure in compression and shear bond strength falls rapidly. Cohesion and friction angles are obtained for different mortars, and the results are discussed. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
