Design and Specification of Masonry Structures Using the MSJC Code and Specification

OnDemand Webinar (87 minutes)

This OnDemand Webinar is intended to update practicing engineers and architects on simplified, cost-effective techniques for designing masonry structures in the context of the 2011 MSJC Code and Specification. Beginning with the basic behavior of wall-type buildings, the conference shows how to use fundamental design principles and simple computer spreadsheets to quickly configure, design, detail, and specify masonry structures. The program also contains a quick introduction to the MSJC Code and Specification, the masonry material standard referenced by the International Building Code (the model code used in most jurisdictions in the U.S.).

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to describe behavior of wall-type buildings for gravity and lateral loads.
  • You will be able to discuss strength design of floor and roof diaphragms.
  • You will be able to explain specification of masonry materials using the MSJC Code and Specification.
  • You will be able to review the health, safety and welfare aspects of the design and specification of masonry structures.
