This test method covers determination of the diagonal tensile or shear strength of masonry assemblages by loading them in compression along one diagonal, thus causing a diagonal tension failure with the specimen splitting apart parallel to the direction of load.
WJE laboratories are accredited by ANAB (ISO/IEC 17025) to perform testing standard ASTM E519 for Standard Test Method for Diagonal Tension (Shear) in Masonry Assemblages.
