Lintels for Masonry Walls


Masonry lintel design is a critical part of an efficient structural masonry solution. The design of masonry lintels can add significant capacity to the structural design and add robustness to the wall that contractors and owners will welcome for crack prevention. In many cases in the past, we have made assumptions to simplify the analysis of masonry lintels that has been a detriment to the architectural and engineering design. Today we have software tools to analyze complex integrated masonry lintels, and therefore engineers should be utilizing those tools for masonry wall and lintel design. We will be demonstrating the construction of several different types of masonry lintels. Engineers, architects, and contractors can see firsthand how different design problems are being solved with masonry lintels.
