Allowable Stress Design of Masonry Night School

This 6-session webinar series will introduce Allowable Stress Design (ASD) of Masonry, review code requirements, and examine designs of common masonry elements including, beams, walls, columns, and pilasters. Presenters will discuss design methodology as well as design for flexure, axial loads, and in-plane loads. The series will conclude with a review of requirements for reinforcement and connectors and detailing masonry effectively.

Allowable Stress Design of Masonry Night School is an excellent way to learn allowable stress design procedures. Attendees should have a basic familiarity with masonry (consistent with content presented in the Masonry 101 Night School Series).

Presented by W. Mark McGinley, Ph.D, PE, FASTM, FTMS, University of Louisville & Scott W. Walkowicz, P.E., Walkowicz Consulting Engineers, LLC

Allowable Stress Design of Masonry #1 – Intro to Allowable Stress Design of Masonry and Design Methodologies
February 9, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - This introductory session introduces the Allowable Stress Design of Masonry series and reviews basic Allowable Stress Design concepts. Dr. McGinley will present key differences between allowable stress design and strength design procedures. This session will also review masonry assemblies and systems, noting their purposes and resistance to primary loads. Read full session description and learning objectives →

Allowable Stress Design of Masonry #2 – Design of Beams
February 16, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - This session reviews allowable stress design of masonry beams and lintels and provides an examination of whether arching action can be used to reduce the loads on these elements. This session will also cover partial depth beams, deep beams, shear reinforcement, long-span beam criteria, torsion, and other requirements. Read full session description and learning objectives →
$75.00
Allowable Stress Design of Masonry #3 – Design of Walls for Axial Load and Out-of-Plane Loads
February 23, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - During this session, allowable stress design of masonry walls loaded with out-of-plane loads and axial loads will be reviewed. Differences in the Allowable Stress design provisions and strength design procedures will be briefly discussed, especially the secondary bending moments.

Allowable Stress Design of Masonry #4 – Wall Design for In-Plane Loads & Seismic Detailing
March 2, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - Shear walls are critical building elements to resist in-plane loads and are, for masonry, the wind and seismic-force-resisting system. This session will review Allowable Stress Design of shear walls, along with both seismic detailing requirements and minimum/maximum detailing requirements for such walls.

Allowable Stress Design of Masonry #5 – Design of Columns and Pilasters & Out of Plane Load Distribution
March 9, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - Masonry columns and pilasters are often used in masonry buildings to carry large, concentrated loads, and, for pilasters, to support exterior walls subjected to out-of-plane loads. ASD design and detailing required for these elements will be reviewed. This session will also look at several sample masonry buildings to illustrate system behavior and overall design methodology.

Allowable Stress Design of Masonry #6 – Reinforcement & Connectors
March 16, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - Reinforcement and connectors are essential to ensure a proper load path in masonry buildings. This session will review basic detailing requirements for reinforcement and connectors, and specific requirements for their design when using allowable stress procedures for masonry. Lap length requirements for reinforcement, use of hooks and confinement bars, and the design of anchor bolts will also be reviewed. Read full session description and learning objectives →
