In addition, information related to masonry design requirements in the International Building Code IBC is also included. Particular attention was given to Special Reinforced Masonry Shear Walls, and these trial designs indicated that further reduction of the constants in the equations was required to achieve approximately the same results, regardless of the design method.

For several decades, the IBC, and one of the predecessor legacy codes, required a 1. The trial designs indicated a very poor correlation between the flexural capacity of elements designed using SD and the same element designed using ASD and the 0.

The committee also gathered most of the provisions for beams and columns and moved them to Chapter One. The allowable steel reinforcement stress for flexure, direct tension and shear has been increased to 32 ksi.

Recent research compared eight different design methodologies, used, or recommended for use, around the world, with the results of laboratory testing. As noted above, some allowable stresses have not yet been harmonized and additional harmonization between ASD, SD and prestressed mshc has been held over as the work of future code cycles. We also reviewed historical code design provisions.

Many MSJC members had serious concerns about the requirements in this section, and set aside the work on a Limit States Design procedure to revise these strength provisions. In the past, shear analysis in ASD of reinforced masonry has been treated very differently than in SD. First Name Last Name.

Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures, – The Masonry Society

While much progress has been made, there is still room for additional harmonization efforts. The MDG has become one of the most popular design guides for masonry due to its extensive examples and practical coverage of masonry design issues.


Much effort had been spent in previous code cycles, trying to maintain provisions in the IBC and the MSJC which were exactly the same in the two documents. The MSJC harmonized the modulus of rupture between the various design methods.

Topics covered in the MDG-6 include masonry materials, testing, quality assurance, quality control, construction methods, structural design, seismic design, and using the MSJC with model Building Codes. Senior structural engineers will remember that the old working stress concrete design flexural limit was 0. The edition of the Code and Specification reformatted the material into five chapters.

This is in recognition of the wide variety of winter construction site conditions possible, and the fact that technology, equipment and methods of construction advance rapidly. This research concluded that, of the eight methodologies, the TMS SD for shear was the best predictor of shear capacity and that the TMS ASD for shear in reinforced masonry was the worst predictor of shear capacity. The main masonry materials in use today are brick, concrete masonry and glass block masonry.

Based on this research, the MSJC modified the SD methodology for shear capacity and converted it to an ASD methodology for shear stress, based on the stresses in both the masonry and the reinforcement.

For example, both documents had hot and cold weather requirements. This is because masonry is a non-homogeneous anisotropic material.

The major harmonization effort in the MSJC was to change the design equations for anchor bolts, so that a designer would get approximately the same bolt spacing using either the ASD procedures or the SD procedures.

The MSJC, and its industry partners also nsjc the process of moving requirements out of the IBC and placing them in the masonry standard.

The trial designs included both brick and concrete masonry; walls with a large variation of aspect ratio, walls with both very low and moderately high axial loads and a wide range of strengths. The Haller Award committee congratulates him on his achievements and selection. In ASD, the shear stress on an element was calculated and compared to a lower level allowable stress which msc be resisted by the masonry alone.

Successful cold weather masonry 208 requires knowledge of code requirements and planning capabilities, along with the capacity to be flexible and innovative. Named for Professor Paul Haller, the Haller Award recognizes an individual engineer or engineering firm that has enhanced the knowledge of masonry in practice. The companion CD included with the book includes additional resources including the complete MDG-5 for reference, Excel spreadsheets used in some of the design examples, additional examples based on IBC requirements, and select technical notes on clay brick and concrete masonry that are often used by designers.

The requirements are grouped within temperature ranges, and while msjx provisions are prescriptive in nature, there is also considerable latitude given to the contractor to use individual methods to satisfy the code requirements. The edition of the Code and Specification had separate chapters for ASD and prestressed masonry design. The allowable axial stress limit was not increased, because there was concern expressed between members of various subcommittees as to what effect this could have.

These three organizations formed the Masonry Standards Joint Committee.
