Masonry Design, Paperback / softback Book



Masonry is found extensively in construction throughout the world.

It is economical and strong. Masonry Design-part of the Architect's Guidebook to Structures series-presents the fundamentals in an accessible fashion through beautiful illustrations, simple and complete examples, and from the perspective of practicing professionals with hundreds of projects under their belt and decades of teaching experience. Masonry Design provides the student with and reminds the practitioner of fundamental masonry design principles.

Beginning with an intriguing case study of the Mesa Verde National Park visitor center, the subsequent chapters present the fundamentals of masonry design, bending, shear, compression design, wind and seismic design, and connection design.

It is a refreshing change in textbooks for architectural materials courses and is an indispensable reference for practicing architects.
