Product Description

This manual is based on the European standards for masonry structural designs in the UK. It supports the design of structures to BS EN 1996-1-1: 2005, BS EN 1996-1-2: 2005 and BS EN 1996-2: 2006 for construction in the UK.
Nationally Determined Parameters from the UK National Annex have been taken into account in the design formulae presented.

The range of structures covered by the manual is limited to building structures that do not rely on bending in masonry for their overall stability (e.g. sway frame buildings).
However, the design of individual masonry elements subject to lateral loading and involving bending for their resistance is included.
The structural design of reinforced and prestressed masonry is specifically excluded from the manual, as are retaining walls and arched structures.
The exception to this is the use of bed joint reinforcement in laterally loaded wall panels and for crack control.
The design of both loadbearing masonry and masonry infill panels to framed structures in accordance with Eurocode 6 is covered by the manual.

The manual is similar in layout to the Institution's earlier manuals on British standards and covers the following:
- choice of structural form (conceptual design)
- choice of materials
- general principles of limit state design for masonry walls and columns
- design of loadbearing masonry
- design of laterally loaded masonry
- details and construction
- design for fire
