Design of Masonry Shear Walls


The design of reinforced masonry shear walls using both the Allowable Stress Design method and the Strength Design method will be covered in this webinar.  The requirements for both the design for overturning and the design for shear are explained. The prescriptive seismic detailing requirements for each of three reinforced masonry shear walls types, ordinary, intermediate, and special, are explained, with particular attention to special reinforced shear walls. The design process is illustrated with examples.
