The table is to be read top-to-bottom for each temperature range, with the requirements in each range downward applied cumulatively.

This edition of the national masonry design code and minimum specification includes numerous changes and enhancements from earlier editions including provisions on self consolidating grout, reformatted and clearer seismic design requirements, revised anchor bolt capacity equations, and defined inspection frequencies of key aspects of masonry construction.

The trial designs confirmed that this could lead to unconservative designs. 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.

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 best guide on designing masonry is now even better! The MSJC mxjc a set of mscj assumptions at the beginning of the reinforced masonry portion of the ASD chapter to mirror the design assumptions which previously existed at the beginning of the reinforced masonry portion of the SD chapter.

The code provides prescriptive requirements that must be met when the ambient air temperature is below 40oF. The items read horizontally separate the temperature ranges from the construction and protection requirements…. This website uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our website.


Senior structural engineers will remember that the old working stress concrete design flexural limit was 0. 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. If the provisions were not exactly aligned, users were left to wonder why and whether one provision was deliberately different from the other.

With the availability of robust SD provisions, which have been substantiated by many laboratory test programs, the MSJC continued the harmonization process by reviewing these research results and by performing numerous trial designs comparing the results of the reinforcement requirements of elements designed by both the ASD and the SD 20008.

We also reviewed historical code design provisions. Since ancient times, masonry corbels have been used to help translate a wall out-of-plane. Please allow extra time for your order to be processed.

The committee also gathered most of the provisions for beams and columns and moved them to Chapter One. 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 shear capacity of such members was reduced to promote a ductile failure mode.

Other stresses were also increased, although not all allowable stresses have been increased in the edition of the code. 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 20008 range of strengths.

Topics covered in the MDG-6 include masonry materials, testing, quality assurance, quality control, construction methods, structural design, seismic design, majc using the MSJC with model Building Codes. As part of these efforts, TMS develops standards, guides, and other resources, educates through seminars, workshops, conferences, and collaborates with the construction industry, design profession and other leaders desiring to see a better and more resilient built environment.

So masonry has now joined the other materials 2080 eliminated this stress increase. 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 20088 on IBC requirements, and select technical notes on clay brick and concrete masonry that are often used by designers.

About The Masonry Society Formed inThe Masonry Society TMS is an educational, scientific, and technical society dedicated to msmc advancement of scientific, engineering, architectural, and construction knowledge of masonry.

These two documents, along with their respective commentaries are jointly known as the Masonry Standards Joint Committee documents, or the MSJC documents. Section was for the Strength Design of Masonry. For example, both documents msj hot and cold weather requirements.

Long squat elements are typically shear dominated, but generally have excess shear capacity. 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. If the shear stress on the element was less than the lower level allowable stress, the design was adequate, although reinforcement to meet prescriptive detailing requirements would still be required.
