Long squat elements are typically shear dominated, but generally have excess shear capacity. The process of harmonization of design provisions in the MSJC documents dates back to the edition of the Code and Specification. The increase in the allowable flexural stress limit applies to all load combinations.

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

The allowable steel reinforcement stress for flexure, direct mejc and shear has been increased to 32 ksi.

The composite action shear stress limit has been increased in ASD. The best guide on designing masonry is now even better! Many MSJC members had serious concerns about the requirements in this section, and set aside the work on a Limit States Design procedure to revise these strength provisions. In addition, information related to masonry design requirements in the International Building Code IBC is also included.

Recent research compared eight different design methodologies, used, or recommended for use, around the world, with the results of laboratory testing.

For example, both documents had hot and cold weather requirements. Material common to different design methods, seismic 20088 requirement, and quality assurance requirements were placed together in Chapter One. Section was for the Strength Design of Masonry.

Topics covered in the MDG-6 include masonry materials, testing, quality assurance, quality control, construction methods, structural design, seismic design, and using the MSJC with model Building Codes. 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.

As part of these efforts, TMS develops standards, guides, and other resources, educates mshc seminars, workshops, conferences, and collaborates with the construction industry, design profession and other leaders desiring to see a better and more resilient built environment.

In both design methods, the shear capacity was adjusted for the shear span of the element to promote ductility. In ArticlesCodes and Standards Comments 0. If the provisions were not exactly aligned, users were left to wonder mxjc and whether msc provision was deliberately different 22008 the other.

The primary masonry design methods in use today are allowable stress design ASDstrength design SD and prestressed masonry design. The code provides prescriptive requirements that must be met when the ambient air temperature is below 40oF. The modification kept the same terms in both methodologies, but modified reduced the nsjc which were applied to these terms.

The MDG has become one of the most popular design guides for masonry due to its extensive examples and practical coverage of masonry design issues.

Masonry Designers’ Guide, 6th Edition

Ed has an extensive background in masonry design, research, and teaching that has msjjc in advancements in masonry design practice and code development. First Name Last Name. The Society is a not-for-profit, membership driven organization that gathers, correlates, and disseminates information for the improvement of the design, construction, manufacture, use, and maintenance of masonry products and structures. The main masonry materials in use today are brick, concrete masonry and glass block masonry.

For example, the prestress committee was unsure of the ramifications of this change on the design of prestress elements. The MSJC, and its industry partners also began the process of moving requirements out of the IBC and placing them in the masonry standard.


The Society is a not-for-profit, membership driven 2080 that gathers, correlates, and disseminates information for the improvement of the design, construction, manufacture, use, and maintenance of masonry products and structures. Since ancient times, masonry corbels have been used to help translate a wall out-of-plane. Successful cold weather masonry construction requires knowledge of code requirements and planning capabilities, along with the capacity to be flexible and innovative.

Senior structural engineers will remember that the old working stress concrete design flexural limit was 0. The trial designs indicated a very poor correlation between the flexural capacity of elements designed using SD and the same element designed using ASD and the 0.

The goal was to encompass the gamut of designs that structural engineers encounter. 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 mscj trial designs comparing the results of the reinforcement requirements of elements designed by both the ASD and the SD procedures.

There is a saying that success 20008 success. In ASD, the shear stress on an element was calculated and compared to a lower level allowable stress which could be resisted by the masonry alone. So masonry has now joined the other materials and eliminated this stress increase. We also reviewed historical code design provisions. He continues to advance masonry knowledge through his ongoing design and investigation practice, as well as disseminate that knowledge through his teaching activities.
