Are You Over-Engineering Masonry? 

This seminar will explore the minimum building code requirements for masonry structures as presented in the International Building Code (IBC) and the Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 402/602). Seismic design requirements may govern the required spacing of reinforcement both vertically and horizontally, and these shear wall systems will be reviewed for participating elements. Minimum and maximum reinforcement provisions for both walls and beams will be reviewed, along with recommendations for the most economical masonry assemblies.
