Re: Masonry in Las Vegas Fully Grouted or Partially Grouted

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Harold ,

Partially grouted CMU walls are typical for warehouses and other one story structures. Also CMU walls are typically designed as special reinforced masonry shearwalls with minimum horizontal and vertical reinforcement per IBC 2106.5.2. However, depending on the soil classification and what data is used for Ss and S1, the site could be SDC D or C.

We always used solid grouted for multi-story masonry bearing wall buildings
we designed on Las Vegas. I don't know what is typical for warehouses or
other one story structures.

What is the tendency for reinforced CMU walls in the Las Vegas area?

I know in California, the convention is to use fully grouted
reinforced CMU walls.  In most other areas of the US, the
convention is to use partially grouted reinforced CMU walls.

What is the convention in the Las Vegas area for reinforced
CMU walls?
Fully grouted or partially grouted?

Harold Sprague
