Prepared by: Dr. Jennifer E. Tanner, University of Wyoming, and Dr. Richard E. Klingner, University of Texas at Austin. These masonry course notes were developed for use in semester-long, undergraduate or a graduate course in masonry as part of a civil engineering or architectural engineering curriculum. Selected parts of the notes can also be used in architecture or construction courses. They comprise 25 lectures (plus a list of references), each intended for presentation in about 75 minutes. These Course Notes reference the 2013 TMS 402/602. - Lectures #1-2: History of masonry presentation* and description - Lectures #3-7: Masonry materials, units, mortar, grout and components - Lecture #8: Basic structural behavior and design of low-rise buildings - Lecture #9: Design of masonry requiring little structural calculation - Lectures #10 and #11: Acoustical, thermal, and fire performance and design of masonry - Lecture #12: Masonry construction and cost estimating - Lecture #13: Building codes; gravity, wind and earthquake loads by ASCE 7-10 - Lecture #14: Introduction to TMS 402-13 treatment of structural design - Lecture #15: Strength design of panel walls - Lecture #16: Strength design of unreinforced bearing walls - Lecture #17: Strength design of unreinforced shear walls - Lecture #18: Strength design of beams, lintels, and curtain walls - Lecture #19: Strength design of reinforced bearing walls - Lectures #20: Strength design of reinforced shear walls - Lecture #21: Lateral-load analysis of shear-wall structures - Lecture #22: Design and detailing of floor and roof diaphragms - Lecture #23: Comparison of design using the ASD and SD approach - Lecture #24: Design of low-rise masonry structure for gravity and wind load - Lecture #25: Design of four-story masonry structure for gravity and seismic load - Lecture #26: References
Formed in 1977, The Masonry Society (TMS) is an educational, scientific, and technical society dedicated to the advancement of scientific, engineering, architectural, and construction knowledge of masonry. The Society is a not-for-profit, membership driven organization that gathers, correlates, and disseminates information for the improvement of the design, construction, manufacture, use, and maintenance of masonry products and structures. As part of these efforts, TMS develops standards, guides, and other resources, educates through seminars, workshops, conferences, and collaborates with the construction industry, design profession and other leaders desiring to see a better and more resilient built environment.
