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
