The TMS 402, Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures, has two design methods: allowable stress design (ASD) and strength design (SD). This presentation compares the differences, advantages, and disadvantages of each design method, with the comparison being made through examples. Examples include beams, pilasters, bearing walls, and shear walls. Both ease of design and amount of required reinforcement are considered. Design tips and shortcuts are provided for both methods.
