Abstract A vertical shear connector suitable for manufacture by automated sheet metal processes from steel coil is developed in an experimental program involving 90 small area bearing tests 18 shear tests and 6 tension tests A comparison of three full-scale wall panel tests (standard cavity wall cavity wall with an unbonded steel mullion and cavity wall with a vertical shear connector) demonstrate that the connector significantly increases both the post- and pre-cracking strength and stiffness of a vertically spanning brick masonry cavity wall under out-of-plane loads
