This lesson looks at the properties of masonry assemblies based on the how it is constructed and bonded. Structural assembly properties including the modulus of elasticity, modulus of rupture, and compressive strength will be introduced and discussed. Other assembly properties related to dimensional stability, fire resistance and energy performance will also be reviewed, along with resources that can be used for additional information on these topics.
- Understand basic masonry Assemblies, construction techniques and the effects these have on Masonry Assembly Attributes
- Identify critical structural properties for masonry assemblies.
- Understand other material properties for masonry
- List other resources and topics for advanced studies
