Masonry Shear walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This question pertains to CMU walls used for back-up to masonry brick.    How much capacity does CMU back-up distribute to the structural frame?  
 
Does anyone have information on the testing of this assembly?
 
I use RAM and was wondering if (how much) I can rely on the CMU for lateral resistance.
