Structural testing was carried out ancilliary to the building of a pair of semi-detached Single-Leaf Insulated Masonry {SLIM) houses. The compressive and flexural strengths of specimens of masonry built of the same materials were determined. A test to destruction under combined loading was carried out in the laboratory on a replica of one side-wall and a lateral loading test was carried out on the corresponding wall of the house, which performed satisfactorily, with adequate safety factors.
