A Complete Guide to Masonry Materials and Structural DesignWritten by the former chair of the Masonry Standards Joint Committee (MSJC), this authoritative volume covers the design of masonry structures using the 2009 International Building Code and the 2008 MSJC Code and Specification.Masonry Structural Design emphasizes the strength design of masonry and includes allowable-stress provisions. Innovations such as autoclaved aerated concrete masonry (AAC) are also discussed. Real-world case studies featuring a low-rise building with reinforced concrete masonry and a four-story building with clay masonry illustrate the techniques presented in this comprehensive resource.Coverage includes:Basic structural behavior and design of low-rise, bearing wall buildingsMaterials used in masonry constructionCode basis for structural design of masonry buildings, including seismic designIntroduction of MSJC treatment of structural designStrength design of reinforced and unreinforced masonry elementsAllowable-stress design of reinforced and unreinforced masonry elementsComparison of design by the allowable-stress approach versus the strength approachLateral load analysis of shear wall structureDesign and detailing of floor and roof diaphragms
