Re: Alternate Design Method

Robert and Michael,
Thank you for the replies.  I do, however, have this information and have used it before.  I am looking for is an example for combined bending and axial load.  I have used the masonry text before, but I don't think it the axial load capacity calculations will be the same.
Thanks for your time.  I do appreciate it.

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.
