This edition has been fully revised and extended to cover blockwork and Eurocode 6 on masonry structures. This valued textbook:
- discusses all aspects of design of masonry structures in plain and reinforced masonry
- summarizes materials properties and structural principles as well as descibing structure and content of codes
- presents design procedures, illustrated by numerical examples
- includes considerations of accidental damage and provision for movement in masonary buildings.
This thorough introduction to design of brick and block structures is the first book for students and practising engineers to provide an introduction to design by EC6.
