Masonry Structural Design, Second Edition

by: Jennifer Eisenhauer Tanner, Ph.D., P.E., Richard E. Klingner, Ph.D.


Abstract: Thoroughly updated coverage of masonry codes, materials, and structural design. This fully revised resource covers the design of masonry structures using the 2015 International Building Code, the ASCE 7-10 loading standard, and the TMS 402-13 and TMS 602-13 design and construction standards. The book emphasizes the strength design of masonry and includes allowable-stress provisions. The latest advances, materials, and techniques are clearly explained. Chapter-long case studies featuring a low-rise building with reinforced concrete masonry and a four-story building with clay masonry illustrate the topics presented. Masonry Structural Design, Second Edition, covers: • Structural behavior and design of low-rise, bearing wall buildings • Materials used in masonry construction • Code basis for structural design of masonry buildings • Basics of seismic design in masonry buildings • MSJC treatment of structural design • Strength design of reinforced and unreinforced masonry elements • Allowable-stress design of reinforced and unreinforced masonry elements • A comparison of design by the allowable-stress approach to design by the strength approach • Lateral load analysis of shear wall structure • Design and detailing of floor and roof diaphragms • Structural design of AAC masonry

Authors:

Jennifer Eisenhauer Tanner, Ph.D., P.E. is an Associate Professor of Civil and Architectural Engineering at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. She is Chair of ACI Committee 526, Autoclaved Aerated Concrete, and was previously a member of TMS 402 (masonry code) for 12 years. In 2010 she received the ACI Young Member Award for Professional Achievement, and was made an ACI Fellow in 2016. Her research interests include laboratory and field testing, nondestructive testing, concrete and masonry durability, building performance, and material performance. Her teaching interests include masonry design, concrete design, construction materials, structural analysis, and earthquake engineering.

Richard E. Klingner, Ph.D. is Emeritus Professor of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering at The University of Texas in Austin, where he taught graduate and undergraduate courses, including a course in masonry engineering. His research interests include the behavior and design of masonry structures for earthquake loads. He was active in numerous technical committees for The Masonry Society, the American Concrete Institute, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the American Society for Testing and Materials. From 2002 to 2008, he was Chair of the Masonry Standards Joint Committee, charged with developing and maintaining U.S. masonry design provisions.
