CMU wall effective length

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For a vertical point load on a masonry wall, what is the common
practice for determining the effective length for which this
load can be spread?  Would the 4t+bearing area rule apply
or should a sloped projection be used?
