Apart fromthemechanismof cracking and destruction of shear walls with openings the values of cracking and ultimate stresses have practical significance. The results of own tests of 10 walls with length l = 4.43 m, height h = 2.43 m and thickness t = 180 mm are analyzed. Walls with three types of holes (A, B and C) were tested at different initial compressive stresses. The obtained wall test results were analyzed in terms of stress and strain relations obtained and the effect of initial compressive stresses. Keywords: AAC; shear walls; walls with openings; cracking shear stress, ultimate shear stress.
