This web seminar will cover the design of masonry shear walls using the strength design method. The seminar will primarily focus on design of shear walls in accordance with the 2016 TMS 402 Code. Advantages of strength design vs. allowable stress design will be shown. Provisions for special reinforced masonry shear walls will also be discussed and the benefits and advantages of using this system will be highlighted. Maximum reinforcement provisions will be covered in detail. The shear friction provisions that were added in the 2016 TMS 402 code will also be presented.
