MASONRY WALLS

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Are you using some other means to resist lateral loads besides the masonry? Have calculated the eccentricity of the brick load on the cmu? Large H/r ratio walls will be very sensitive to eccentric loading. What size column can span 55' with no lateral support? You need a radius of gyration of 3.3" to be under the kL/200 limit assuming the builing is restrainrd agaist lateral drift.
