About Course

Design of Masonry Structures.

Masonry structures constitute approximately 85% of the built stock in a developing country such as India; however, a vast majority of this is non-engineered or semi-engineered constructions demonstrating poor performance, particularly under earthquake actions. Formal engineering design and detailing with due consideration to seismic action is indispensable to ensure structural safety.

In this direction, the recent edition of the National Building Code (2016) of India has introduced reinforced masonry design as a viable structural option. The current course aims to elucidate theories on the mechanical behavior of masonry assemblages under different actions and introduce students to working stress and limit state approaches to analysis and design of unreinforced, reinforced, confined masonry structures for gravity and lateral loads, including earthquake loads.

The course will also briefly address the behavior of masonry infill walls and procedures for structural assessment and strengthening of existing masonry structures. Students who undertake this course will understand the behavior of structural masonry under different loads and be able to estimate capacities and design masonry walls and systems.

 

INTENDED AUDIENCE: The course is appropriate for senior UG (Civil) and PG students specializing in structural engineering.
