# Tag: 2008 MSJC Code Minimum and Maximum Reinforcement Ratios for Flexural Design of Masonry Shear Walls by the Strength Approach

Minimum Flexural Reinforcement by 2008 MSJC Code The 2008 MSJC Code has no global requirements for minimum flexural reinforcement for shear walls. Maximum Flexural Reinforcement by 2008 MSJC Code The 2008 MSJC Code has a maximum reinforcement requirement (Sec. 3.3.3.5) that is intended to ensure ductile behavior over a range of axial loads. As compressive axial load increases, the maximum

# Tag: 2008 MSJC Code Minimum and Maximum Reinforcement Ratios for Out-of-Plane Flexural Design of Masonry Walls by the Strength Approach

The strength design provisions of the 2008 MSJC Code include requirements for minimum and maximum flexural reinforcement. In this section, the implications of those requirements for the out-of-plane flexural design of masonry walls are addressed. Minimum Flexural Reinforcement by 2008 MSJC Code The 2008 MSJC Code has no requirements for minimum flexural reinforcement for out-of-plane design of masonry walls. Maximum
