Product Description

Since the publication of the first edition (1997) a number of amendments have been made to BS5628 parts 1 and 3; the underpinning British standards to this manual. As such, this second edition refers to the editions of these codes (BS5628-1, 2001 and BS5628-3, 2002) that were current at the time of this edition's publication.

In view of the phased introduction of BS EN (CEN) product standards for masonry and the withdrawal of the conflicting and existing British standards, this revision includes references to both sets of standards and covers the interim period where both sets of standards apply. References to BS EN standards have been included where appropriate. The manual is intended for use by structural engineers in the preparation of structural design calculations and covers the following design stages:

  • Choice of structural form
  • Choice of materials
  • General principles of limit-state design for masonry walls and columns
  • Design of loadbearing masonry 
  • Details and construction

    The opportunity has also been taken to update sections in line with current practice - including masonry movement and mortar specification.
