A joint research project by the University of Newcastle and the ETH Zurich on the structural
behaviour of unreinforced masonry elements subjected to cyclic shear is underway at the University
of Newcastle. The main goal of the research project is to investigate the influence of a damp‐proof
course (DPC) on the structural behaviour of masonry walls subjected to shear when the DPC is placed
in the bed joint or at the interface of the masonry and its supporting concrete slab.
