Description / Abstract:

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

• MSJC treatment of structural design

• Strength design of reinforced and unreinforced masonry elements

• Allowable-stress design of reinforced and unreinforced masonry elements

• A comparison of design by the allowable-stress approach to design by the strength approach

• Lateral load analysis of shear wall structure

• Design and detailing of floor and roof diaphragms

• Structural design of AAC masonry
