A thoroughly revised guide to masonry materials and structural design
This practical guide provides you with a single source for everything you need to know about masonry—from commonly used materials and their behaviors to code requirements and design details. The book has been completely updated to fully align with the 2015 International Building Code and the 2013 MSJC Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures.
Masonry Structural Design, Second Edition, clearly shows how to apply both LRFD and ASD design methods to unreinforced and reinforced masonry elements. New and expanded sections cover the effects of lateral loads on masonry, floor and roof diaphragm design techniques, and innovations in autoclaved aerated concrete. In-depth case studies demonstrate how to apply complex code provisions to real-world designs.
• Covers the masonry design topics that appear on the PE and SE exams
• Includes new end-of-chapter design problems that reinforce key concepts
• Written by a pair of experienced engineers and educators
