Coordinating Structural and Architectural
Masonry Details for Thermal Efficiency
Including Updates on the New 2013 Connecticut Code - IBC 2012 & MSJC 2011
Presenter: Richard Filloramo
Coordinating structural and architectural masonry details for thermal efficiency can be challenging with new contemporary designs, building code requirements, budget restraints and fast-paced schedules. This presentation will feature some of the most challenging masonry details with real solutions by coordinating structural and architectural details. Some of the details covered are; Standard Shelf Angles, Projecting Shelf Angles, Special Shelf Angles, Stairwells, Masonry Veneers – no Relieving Angles, Top of Wall, Loose Lintels, Beam Details and Column Details. There will be a brief review of how increased masonry strength (f’m) can reduce wall costs and increase thermal efficiency in light of the proposed revisions to MSJC Table 2 – Compressive Strength of Masonry. This presentation will also include IBC 2012 and 2011 MSJC Masonry 530 Code updates for the new 2013 Connecticut Building Code.
