Allowable Stress Design of Masonry #3: Design of Walls for Axial Load and Out-of-Plane Loads

During this session, allowable stress design of masonry walls loaded with out-of-plane loads and axial loads will be reviewed. Differences in the Allowable Stress design provisions and strength design procedures will be briefly discussed, especially the secondary bending moments.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the design of walls loaded with out-of-plane with axial loads, including a brief overview of unreinforced masonry design
  • Describe basic differences between allowable stress design and strength design for such walls
  • Development of ASD Interaction diagrams will be presented
  • Provide examples of masonry walls for common thicknesses, reinforcing and load and loads

Allowable Stress Design of Masonry introduces Allowable Stress Design (ASD) of Masonry, review code requirements, and examine designs of common masonry elements including, beams, walls, columns, and pilasters. The series discusses design methodology as well as design for flexure, axial loads, and in-plane loads. It concludes with a review of requirements for reinforcement and connectors and detailing masonry effectively. It is recommended that you have a basic familiarity with masonry (consistent with content presented in the Masonry 101 Series).
