Structural masonry is used most extensively for elements that fundamentally resist compressionwalls, columns, piers, or pedestals. This essential reference for all design and construction needs provides a complete guide to masonry as a structural, rather than decorative, material. It clearly and thoroughly describes various types of structural masonry, such as brick, concrete, block, stone and other clay materials as well as glass block.
This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ... (6) Columns for Discount on Purchases and Discount on Notes on the same side of the Cash Book; (c) Columns for Discount on Sales and Cash Sales on the debit side of the Cash Book; (d) Departmental columns in the Sales Book and in the Purchase Book. Controlling Accounts.--The addition of special columns in books of original entry makes possible the keeping of Controlling Accounts. The most common examples of such accounts are Accounts Receivable account and Accounts Payable account. These summary accounts, respectively, displace individual customers' and creditors' accounts in the Ledger. The customers' accounts are then segregated in another book called the Sales Ledger or Customers' Ledger, while the creditors' accounts are kept in the Purchase or Creditors' Ledger. The original Ledger, now much reduced in size, is called the General Ledger. The Trial Balance now refers to the accounts in the General Ledger. It is evident that the task of taking a Trial Balance is greatly simplified because so many fewer accounts are involved. A Schedule of Accounts Receivable is then prepared, consisting of the balances found in the Sales Ledger, and its total must agree with the balance of the Accounts Receivable account shown in the Trial Balance. A similar Schedule of Accounts Payable, made up of all the balances in the Purchase Ledger, is prepared, and it must agree with the balance of the Accounts Payable account of the General Ledger." The Balance Sheet.--In the more elementary part of the text, the student learned how to prepare a Statement of Assets and Liabilities for the purpose of disclosing the net capital of an enterprise. In the present chapter he was shown how to prepare a similar statement, the Balance Sheet. For all practical...
Copublished with the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures and Specifications for Masonry StructuresØis a joint effort of the American Concrete Institute and the American Society of Civil Engineers. The code covers the design and construction of masonry structures, andØthe specifications address the quality, inspection, testing, and placement of the materials. Topics in the code include: embedded items; strength and serviceability; flexural and axial loads; walls; pilasters; and empirical design of masonry. Topics in the specifications include: inspection requirements; determination of compressive strength; construction of masonry; provision and placement of reinforcement and metal accessories; and the provision and placement of grout.
Modern fastening techniques are increasingly being used to transfer loads into concrete and masonry structures. In spite of this fact knowledge of the behaviour of such systems is very limited and there is no generally accepted design method. This book has been written by a group of eminent authors from western Europe, Canada, the USA and Japan and with the specific aim of: Compiling and comparing published research on the behaviour of fastening systems; proposing a consistent approach to the design of fastenings based on current empirical and theoretical models; and developing design methods that account for the effects of fastenings to concrete and masonry structures for all types of load including monotonic, sustained, fatigue, seismic and impact loads as well as the influences of environmental effects. In this report, the behaviour of fastenings in concrete and masonry for the entire range of loading types, as well as the influence of the environmental effects, is reviewed, based on experimental results from various parts of the world. The existing design approaches are compared with the available experimental data, and a consistent design method is recommended. The publication is applicable to both new constructions and the repair and strengthening of existing structures.
The book aims to provide an overview of the state of the art on the mechanics of arches and masonry structures. It is addressed to an international audience, arising from the international context in which the Associazione Edoardo Benvenuto has carried out its activities in recent years, under the honorary presidency of Jacques Heyman. The book belongs to the collection Between Mechanics and Architecture, born in 1995 from the collaboration of several renowned scholars, including Edoardo Benvenuto (P. Radelet-de Grave, E. Benvenuto (eds.), Entre Mécanique et Architecture / Between Mechanics and Architecture, Birkhäuser, Basel 1995).
A complete, accessible introduction to structural masonry fundamentals. This practical volume provides a thorough grounding in the design of masonry structures for buildings --with clear and easy-to-grasp coverage of basic materials, construction systems, building codes, industry standards, and simple computations for structural elements of commonly used forms of masonry. Well-written and carefully organized, the book: * Includes all principal types of masonry materials: brick, stone, fired clay, concrete block, glass block, and more * Contains information on unreinforced, reinforced, and veneered construction * Examines key design criteria: dead loads, live loads, lateral loads, structural planning, building code requirements, and performance measurement * Features helpful study aids --including exercises and solutions, glossary of terms, bibliography, and detailed appendices. Requiring only minimal prior experience in engineering analysis or design, Simplified Design of Masonry Structures is ideal for self-study or classroom use. It is an essential reference for architecture and engineering students and professionals.
