In both design methods, the shear capacity was adjusted for the shear span of the element to promote ductility. The MSJC harmonized the modulus of rupture between the various design methods.

The nsjc steel reinforcement stress for flexure, direct tension and shear has been increased to 32 ksi. The MSJC, and its industry partners also began the process of moving requirements mshc of the IBC and placing them in the masonry standard. The best guide on designing masonry is now even better!

There is a saying that success begets success. In ArticlesCodes and Standards Comments 0. Formed inThe Masonry Society TMS is an educational, scientific, and technical 20008 dedicated to the advancement of scientific, engineering, architectural, and construction knowledge of masonry.

The trial designs indicated a very poor correlation between the flexural capacity of elements designed using SD and the same element designed using ASD and the 0.

Masonry Designers’ Guide, 6th Edition – The Masonry Society

Much effort had been spent in previous code cycles, trying to maintain provisions in the IBC and the MSJC which were exactly the same in the two documents. For several decades, the IBC, and one of the predecessor legacy codes, required a 1. This research concluded that, of the eight methodologies, the TMS SD for shear was the best predictor of shear msjjc and that the TMS ASD for shear in reinforced masonry was the worst predictor of shear capacity.

We also reviewed historical code design provisions. The edition of the Code and Specification reformatted 2008 material into five chapters. As part of these efforts, TMS develops standards, guides, and other resources, educates through seminars, workshops, conferences, and collaborates with the construction industry, design profession and other leaders desiring to see a better and more resilient built environment.


In the past, shear analysis in ASD of reinforced masonry has been treated very differently than in SD.

The main masonry materials in use today are brick, concrete masonry and glass block masonry. Msmc committee also gathered most of the provisions for beams and columns and moved them to Chapter One. First Name Last Name. Section was for the Strength Design of Masonry.

Description Additional information Description The best guide on designing masonry is now even better! The primary masonry design methods in use today are allowable stress design ASDstrength design SD and prestressed masonry design. Your message Submit Comment. The MDG-6 is an excellent resource for masonry designers as well as students learning about masonry for the first time because it: These two documents, along with their respective commentaries are jointly known as the Masonry Standards Joint Committee documents, or the MSJC documents.

The process of harmonization of design provisions in the MSJC documents dates back to the edition of the Code and Specification. TMS will be closed December 24th, 25th, 31st and January 1st.

Ed has an extensive background in masonry design, research, and teaching that has resulted in advancements in masonry design practice and code development.

May, By Edwin T. This has been set aside as ongoing work for a future cycle.

Long squat elements are typically shear dominated, but generally have excess shear capacity. In ASD, the shear stress on an element was calculated and compared to a lower level allowable stress which could be resisted by the masonry alone. Material common to different design methods, seismic design requirement, and quality assurance requirements were placed together in Chapter One. If the provisions were not exactly aligned, users were left to wonder why msjd whether one provision was deliberately different from the other.

The shear capacity of such members was reduced to promote a ductile failure mode. The trial designs included both brick and concrete masonry; walls with a large variation of aspect ratio, mjc with both very low and moderately high axial loads and a wide range of strengths. For example, both documents had hot and cold weather requirements. The table is to be read top-to-bottom for each temperature range, with the requirements in each range downward applied cumulatively.


Please allow extra time for your order to be processed. This allowed them to include a SD chapter for masonry in the MSJC, so that they could begin shaping a workable set of strength design provisions.

The trial designs confirmed that this mxjc lead to unconservative designs. The goal was to encompass the gamut of designs that structural engineers encounter. The masonry modulus of rupture is used for the design of unreinforced masonry. This website uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our 2080. Successful cold weather masonry construction requires knowledge of code requirements smjc planning capabilities, along with the capacity to be flexible and innovative.

The major harmonization effort in the MSJC was to change the design equations for anchor bolts, so that a designer would get approximately the same bolt spacing using either the ASD procedures or the SD procedures.

The code provides prescriptive requirements that must be met when the ambient air temperature is below 40oF.

Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures, 2008

Senior structural engineers will remember that the old working stress concrete design flexural limit was 0. Please allow extra time for your order to be processed. The MSJC added a set of design assumptions at the beginning of 0208 reinforced masonry portion of the ASD chapter to mirror the design assumptions which previously existed at the beginning of the reinforced masonry portion of the SD chapter.

Many of the requirements for anchor bolts, such as placement, effective nsjc and embedment length, were consolidated and moved to Chapter One. Based on this research, the MSJC modified the SD methodology for 20008 capacity and converted it to an ASD methodology for shear stress, based on the stresses in both the masonry and the reinforcement.
