Two series of uniaxial and triaxial compression tests including unloading-reloading cycles were performed under different confining pressures, in order to study the stress-strain and the deformation behavior of a pozzolanic lime mortar subjected to cyclic loading. Each test included a cyclic loading sequence using five loops in the pre-peak region. The experimental results showed that the specimens exhibit a strain-softening behavior for uniaxial and low pressure triaxial tests and a strain-hardening behavior for higher triaxial compression tests. The mortar specimens subjected to triaxial compressive cyclic loading at higher confining pressures failed along a single or conjugate shear planes accompanied by considerable lateral expansion. The marked Young’s modulus degradation behavior in the pre-peak region is related to damage that occurs in each specimen.
