|“Structural Masonry Done Right”
in the April issue of Interface magazine.
Structural masonry is a proven system that saves time and money, without sacrificing good looks. It can be the primary structural system, or integrated with a steel or reinforced concrete frame. IMI can show you how.
“With IMI’s help, we replaced a poured-in-place concrete foundation wall with CMU as a deduct alternate.”
The importance of good structural software can’t be underestimated as a tool for today’s structural engineer. During the last few years, the software options available to structural engineers for masonry design have grown and the use of masonry structurally has become more prevalent and sophisticated. To support the engineering community in the use of structural masonry the International Masonry Institute has funded this manual.
