Thoroughly Updated Coverage of Masonry Codes, Materials, and Structural Design
This fully revised resource covers the design of masonry structures using the 2015 International Building Code, the ASCE 7-10 loading standard, and the TMS 402-13 and TMS 602-13 design and construction standards. The book emphasizes the strength design of masonry and includes allowable-stress provisions. The latest advances, materials, and techniques are clearly explained. Chapter-long case studies featuring a low-rise building with reinforced concrete masonry and a four-story building with clay masonry illustrate the topics presented.
Masonry Structural Design, Second Edition, covers:
* Structural behavior and design of low-rise, bearing wall buildings
* Materials used in masonry construction
* Code basis for structural design of masonry buildings
* Basics of seismic design in masonry buildings
* Introduction to MSJC treatment of structural design
* Strength design of reinforced and unreinforced masonry elements
* Allowable-stress design of reinforced and unreinforced masonry elements
* Comparison of design by the allowable-stress approach versus the strength approach
* Lateral load analysis of shear wall structure
* Design and detailing of floor and roof diaphragms
* Structural design of AAC masonry
