A Complete Guide to Masonry Materials and Structural Design Written by the former chair of the Masonry Standards Joint Committee (MSJC), this authoritative volume covers the design of masonry structures using the 2009 International Building Code and the 2008 MSJC Code and Specification. Masonry Structural Design emphasizes the strength design of masonry and includes allowable-stress provisions. Innovations such as autoclaved aerated concrete masonry (AAC) are also discussed. Real-world case studies featuring a low-rise building with reinforced concrete masonry and a four-story building with clay masonry illustrate the techniques presented in this comprehensive resource. Coverage includes: Basic structural behavior and design of low-rise, bearing wall buildings Materials used in masonry construction Code basis for structural design of masonry buildings, including seismic design Introduction of 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

Introduction to Structures - the lead book in the Architect’s Guidebook to Structures series - presents structures in simple, accessible fashion through beautiful illustrations, worked examples, and from the perspective of practicing professionals with a combined experience of over 75 years. It introduces the student to, and reminds the practitioner of, fundamental structural design principles. Beginning by introducing structural forms in nature and history, the process of design, and selecting structural systems and materials, the book then moves onto statics, mechanics of materials, and structural analysis. The final chapter provides guidance on preliminary structural design, complete with decision criteria and design tables. Edited by experienced professional structural engineers, with vital contributions from practicing architects, Introduction to Structures is fully illustrated, contains clear step by step examples and preliminary design guidance. Designed as a key textbook for introductory structures courses, it is also an indispensable reference for practicing architects.
