Major Structural Design Changes in TMS 402/602-22
This webinar provides an overview of the major structural changes to TMS 402-22. Topics include: explanation of how the introduction of compression-controlled sections in SD affect maximum reinforcement provisions; definition of net shear area particularly for beams; anchor bolt steel strength changing from being based on yield strength to ultimate strength; an increase of the allowable compressive force for masonry in ASD; changes in the partially grouted shear wall factor; an increase in the allowable shear friction strength, as well as a change in the nominal shear friction strength. The potential impacts of these changes will also be reviewed.
Planning and Design of Efficient Masonry Structures
Seemingly simple decisions during design can dramatically affect cost and schedule on a project. By understanding the various options available in materials, design and construction methods, more cost-efficient structures will result. This seminar will highlight areas where proper understanding of masonry can result in better buildings. Ways to use existing materials more effectively, explanations of the effect of one selection on another, and discussions of new materials will be included. Creating designs with masonry lintels or masonry partition walls will also be explained.
