Slenderness of masonry block walls Man, Eric


The slenderness effect of masonry walls is examined through the combination of existing analytical methods and experimental results for masonry walls. The current code design capacities, when compared with the theoretical values, are found to be inconsistent and over-conservative. A Limit State Design approach for plain and reinforced masonry walls is proposed based on the Moment Magnifier Method, which is the current ACI design format for slender concrete columns.
