This detail shows the connection of a loadbearing CMU wall to a steel column as part of a hybrid masonry and steel structural system. The CMU is anchored to the column with a 3/16″ dia. galvanized wire anchor held to the column with a welded bar. Fireproofing on the steel is not shown for clarity. The leading cell at the CMU is vertically grouted and reinforced per design. There is a gap between the steel and the block to allow for anticipated frame drift, and a vertical control joint is provided at the interface of materials to allow for shrinkage of the block.
