Designing a Better Masonry Wall
This presentation reviews the evolution of masonry wall design and construction from solid walls into today’s cavity walls. Learning objectives are to: 1) Learn what types of masonry reinforcing and their placement are best for today’s walls. 2) Understand why truss and ladder reinforcing has evolved into adjustable metal tie reinforcing. 3) Grasp the basics of adjustable metal tie design and installation as required by the building code. 4) Review how flashing, mortar collection devices and weeps work together to control moisture in a cavity wall.
