This seminar is for designers and builders who would like to be more knowledgeable about typical and not-so-typical structural masonry applications – especially when interacting with a structural engineer. You will learn current structural masonry design methods and be able to understand how engineers think about masonry.
If you desire to use tall thin wall profiles or produce economical masonry designs for your next project, then this is a good seminar for you. At a minimum we will teach you how to spot a masonry project that may be over-designed or where the masonry is being under-utilized. This seminar will show case studies of how structural masonry can be faster and less expensive than steel frame and metal stud buildings.
- Review basic structural properties of masonry
- Explore masonry misconceptions and myths
- Discover updated design criteria and methods for masonry and realistic height limitations
- Learn how properly designed masonry can be more economical than other systems.
