    Abstract. The stress-strain state (SSS) of a facing layer of three-layer walls with flexible ties was investigated. When developing computational models of FEM, designation of strength and deformation characteristics of materials, the results of experimental studies of a large-scale model of a building fragment with three-layer walls and field observations were used. The determining influence of floor slabs and temperature-humidity effects on the SSS of the masonry of the facing layer of non-bearing walls and the appearance of cracks in it is shown. The need to take into account, when calculating three-layer walls, not only the difference of closure temperatures and the temperature the masonry of the face layer, but and of the floor slab end opened from the street side and also of a part of the slab located inside the room with due regard for the internal temperature of the room was revealed. The methods for determining the SSS of the facing layer masonry under temperature-humidity influences have been developed.
    Key words: three-layer walls with flexible ties, stress-strain state of facing layer masonry, temperature and humidity deformations, closure temperature, crack opening width, methods of multi-layer walls calculation.
