Alternate Design Method

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I recall you have to check the allowable bending moment based on allowable concrete stress, also:


M = 0.5 * f'c * j * k * b * d^2


Correct me if I'm wrong.  It's been a long, long time.


You could also get a masonry design book.  Masonry WSD is just like Concrete WSD.
