Will provide an introduction to the analysis and design of structural masonry components and building systems. The fundamental principles covered in CE 418.3 (Design in Reinforced Concrete) will be extended to flexural members, walls and columns constructed from masonry components, in accordance with the requirements of CSA Standard CSA-S304.1-04 (Design of Masonry Structures). Lateral load resisting systems in low-rise buildings will be discussed, emphasizing the role and behaviour of shear walls and horizontal diaphragms. Elementary concepts of building science will also be introduced, focusing on heat and moisture flow through building envelopes.
