COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF MASONRY
COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF MASONRY
Compressive Strength of Masonry versus Compressive Strength of Masonry Units Like reinforced concrete, the design of reinforced masonry structures is based on two key parameters: (1) the compressive strength of masonry (denoted by symbol ) discussed in this section and (2) yield stress of reinforcing steel (denoted by symbol fy) discussed in the next section. Similar to concrete, masonry is strong in compression and weak in tension. Acco…
