Description

These masonry course notes were developed for use in semester‐long, combined undergraduate and graduate courses in masonry engineering.

They comprise the following:

  • 25 lectures (plus a list of references), each intended for presentation in about 1:15:
    • Lectures #1‐2 History of masonry presentation and description.*
    • Lectures #3‐7 Masonry materials, units, mortar, grout and components.
    • Lecture #8 Basic structural behavior and design of low‐rise buildings.
    • Lecture #9 Design of masonry requiring little structural calculation.
    • Lecture #10 Strength design of beams, lintels, and curtain walls.
    • Lecture #11 Masonry construction and cost estimating.
    • Lecture #12 Building codes; gravity, wind and earthquake loads by ASCE 7‐15.
    • Lecture #13 Introduction to TMS 402‐16 treatment of structural design.
    • Lecture #14 Strength design of panel walls.
    • Lecture #15 Strength design of unreinforced bearing walls.
    • Lecture #16 Strength design of unreinforced shear walls.
    • Lecture #17 Strength design of reinforced bearing walls.
    • Lecture #18 Strength design of reinforced shear walls.
    • Lecture #19 Lateral‐load analysis of shear‐wall structures.
    • Lecture #20 Comparison of design using the ASD and SD approach.
    • Lecture #21 Design of low‐rise masonry structure for gravity and wind load.
    • Lecture #22 Design of four‐story masonry structure for gravity and seismic load.
    • Lectures #23 and #24 Acoustical, thermal, and fire performance and design of masonry.
    • Lecture #25 References.

Many lectures are accompanied by spreadsheets to simplify design problems.

  • A sample syllabus
  • Sample problem sets and solutions

The course notes can be used for an undergraduate or a graduate course in masonry as part of a civil engineering or architectural engineering curriculum. Selected parts of the notes can also be used in architecture or construction courses. Lectures 1 and 2 were developed by Grimm and Klingner and the slide show and accompanying materials are available for purchase from TMS.

This edition of the Masonry Course Notes is based on the 2016 edition of TMS 402/602.

*A handout of the slideshow is included with these Course Notes as a separate unprotected PDF. The PowerPoint is available for purchase separately.
