Allowable Stress Design of Masonry #6: Reinforcement & Connectors
Reinforcement and connectors are essential to ensure a proper load path in masonry buildings. This session reviews basic detailing requirements for reinforcement and connectors and specific requirements for their design when using allowable stress procedures for masonry. Lap length requirements for reinforcement, use of hooks and confinement bars, and the design of anchor bolts are also be reviewed.
- Discuss basic detailing requirements for reinforcement and connectors
- Review specific Allowable Stress design requirements for reinforcement and connectors
- Overview development and lap splice requirements for reinforcement
- Review Allowable Stress design of anchor bolts
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).
