Loving Your Local Mason


Our structural engineering education includes fundamental principles of mechanics of materials and structural analysis that help us to understand and design structural members and systems. We occasionally wander into design considerations outside of the structural realm, such as corrosion protection and serviceability. Still, rarely are we taught to prioritize constructability as a primary focus of structural design. This consideration often comes with experience as we learn that the most efficient or elegant structural solution is not always the easiest to construct or the least expensive. Structural engineers’ limited education on masonry materials and limited exposure to masonry construction processes can magnify installation issues. This presentation highlights how engineers can avoid some of the most common constructability issues with modern structural masonry.
