Analysis and design of reinforced masonry beams, walls and columns with additional emphasis on lateral design considerations.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
- Analyze reinforced masonry members.
- Design and detail various types of reinforced masonry members such as
- Beams for both flexure and shear
- Walls resisting axial loads, out-of-plane bending, and in-plane lateral loads as well as the interaction of these loads
- Columns and pilasters for axial and flexure
- Footings, piers, and foundation walls
- Be familiar with the building code, ACI 530, and be able to apply the guidelines therein to design and detailing mentioned above
