The research aims at conducting a quality research with Reinforcement of a hollow brick wall. The empty internal sections significantly lower the dead load. With a better surface finish, the side of the block was cast, minimizing the cost of plastering. Several sample mixes are tested to achieve a finished surface. The respective frames were cast with and without reinforcement and the test results were compared. The blocks were used to build masonry walls and ' load-bearing strength ' of the walls was tested. It is possible to use the reinforced hollow block as a load-bearing wall. Nearly 75 percent of the deaths related to the earthquake in the last century,Buildings have collapsed, the majority of which (more than 70 percent)is due to the collapse of buildings made of masonry. Most of the properties in India are Unreinforced Masonry (URM) buildings that are weak and vulnerable even under moderate earthquakes and that function on the wall due to high wind forces, causing severe damage to high wind loads and it is recognized that Reinforced Masonry Building has many advantages over unreinforced masonry building.The use was very limited in Indian building practices and there are still no approved codes and shear walls were used in most constructions, even in mild earthquakes, instead of reinforced masonry walls.
