Product Description

This second edition (2018) updates the first (2008) to cover the design of structures to BS EN 1996-1-1:2005+A1:2012, 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 — which have been significantly updated since the first edition — have informed the design formulae presented here. This edition also reflects the latest requirements of many other codes and standards.

This Manual focuses on structures that do not rely on bending in masonry for their overall stability (e.g. sway frame buildings), although the design of individual masonry elements subject to lateral loading and involving bending for their resistance, is included.

Specifically, the Manual covers:

  • Choice of structural form (and 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 (and masonry infill panels to framed structures)
  • Details and construction
  • Design for fire
  • Design for accidental damage

    Notably, the structural design of reinforced and prestressed masonry, as well as retaining walls and arched structures, are not covered here — although an exception is the use of bed joint reinforcement; for both laterally loaded walls and for crack control.

    This Manual is part of a 7-title suite of Eurocode manuals.
