Minimum wall bearing thickness

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Sirs;

What do you use for minimum thickness in a wall bearings built in Concrete
Mansonry? And in Clay Mansonry?

Would you use a 90 mm wall thickness (the wall is 4 m length x 3 m height)
clay mansory (square hollow blocks, 8 holes, 90mmx190mmx190mm each piece)
that carries 45 kN/m (the compressive strenght is 295 kN/m)? It is in a 2
stories house.
