Re: Masonry Shear walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would like to recommend to you Robert R. Schneider & Walter L. Dickey's book Reinforced Masonry Design III edition. You will find this book is an excellent text book if you want to learn structural masonry design. Also have shear wall design covered. A must have for the structural engineer designing with masonry.

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
