Description

A complete, accessible introduction to structural masonryfundamentals.

This practical volume provides a thorough grounding in the designof masonry structures for buildings --with clear and easy-to-graspcoverage of basic materials, construction systems, building codes,industry standards, and simple computations for structural elementsof commonly used forms of masonry. Well-written and carefullyorganized, the book:
* Includes all principal types of masonry materials: brick, stone,fired clay, concrete block, glass block, and more
* Contains information on unreinforced, reinforced, and veneeredconstruction
* Examines key design criteria: dead loads, live loads, lateralloads, structural planning, building code requirements, andperformance measurement
* Features helpful study aids --including exercises and solutions,glossary of terms, bibliography, and detailed appendices.

Requiring only minimal prior experience in engineering analysis ordesign, Simplified Design of Masonry Structures is ideal forself-study or classroom use. It is an essential reference forarchitecture and engineering students and professionals.
