I mean this type of brick bond.
Can this type of brick bond be used for bearing walls? Hi.
I am an architect and I'd like to hear your advise. Can this type of brick bond be used for a load bearing wall? I think that this zigzag form makes the wall stronger, but will it be enough? I am talking about a two story building with a maximum height 7 meters. the grid is 3.60 m X 4.00 m.
Where am I?

In masonary work, we used usually 1:4 cement-sand mortar of compressive strength 3.8N/mm2.
The compressive strength of one brick of standard size is 11.12N/mm2.
The compressive strength of brick masonry is 2.5 N/mm2.
