This paper demonstrates the author's own results from tests performed on ten masonry units made of autoclaved aerated concrete. The tests were performed in four series of two elements. The first series denoted as HOS-AAC included four elements (the reference elements)withoutopenings. In remaining three series, we used walls with different opening shapes denoted by convention as A, B and C. The failure mechanism and changes in cracking morphology were described. The next part will present the remaining results that are relevant from the practical point of view.
