    / user per year

Content Description

With dozens of design examples and design tips, coupled with excellent discussion, Strength Design of Masonry is a guide every practicing designer will want on their bookshelf to both learn from, and to reference. Topics addressed include an introduction to strength design concepts, background on structural masonry, general design, strength design procedures for beams, walls, columns, and shear walls, requirements for reinforcement and anchor bolts, and recommendations for construction. While the guide addresses unreinforced masonry, the primary focus is reinforced masonry designed to the 2016 edition of TMS 402/602 and the 2018 International Building Code. This Guide was developed to introduce strength design principles of masonry to designers unfamiliar with the method, while helping those more experienced use strength design easily and effectively.
