Tag: Reinforced Bearing Walls Introduction to Strength Design of Reinforced Bearing Walls

In this section, we shall study the behavior and design of reinforced masonry wall elements subjected to combinations of axial force and outof- plane flexure. In the context of engineering mechanics, they are beamcolumns. In the context of the MSJC Code, however, a “column” is an isolated masonry element rarely found in real masonry construction. Masonry beam-columns, like those of
