Strength Design was introduced in the TMS 402 masonry code in 2002. Most masonry design is still allowable stress design, but strength design offers several advantages, including the design being similar to reinforced concrete and the designs using the reinforcement more efficiently than allowable stress design. This webinar will provide an introduction to masonry strength design. Design methods for flexural elements, including lintels and non-bearing walls, will be presented. Bearing wall design methods, including the inclusion of second-order effects, will be presented along with design tips. Shear walls design will be covered, including shear design, flexural design, and seismic prescriptive design requirements. The webinar will be based on the 2016 TMS 402 code, but changes that are in the 2022 code will be shown.
