Rat Trap Bond Wall for Low Cost Material &High Strength
Abstract: The proposed investigation aims at investigating the structural strength or RAP TRAP BOND WALL, Presently in any masonry structure the use of English bond brick is one of material made from clay. Now a days it has become a costly material so it is better to use less bricks in constructing walls by using Rat trap bond. Use of Rat trap bond is profitable from point of view of its less costly, less energy intensive and more labour, intensive. RAT TRAP BOND becomes very appropriate, at present very few information are available regarding structural properties of Rat trap bond. Even Indian code of practices for masonry works is silent on Rat trap bond masonry work. In 1999. Urban housing shortages were found to 9.6 million units. In these days of increasing cost of construction, the dream of owning a house particularly for low income and middle income family is becoming a different reality.
