Best textbook for Structural Masonry Design ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am looking for a reference textbook (updated with latest version of associated codes ) to learn structural masonry design. I don't have solid background on the topic and have never passed a course on that during school days, so I want a complete and transparent book to start with. Thanks for your time and consideration.

Two suggestions:

Reinforced Masonry Engineering Handbook by Amrhein

Design of Reinforced Masonry structures by Hart.

http://cmacn.org/bookstore-CMACN.htm

The second book is a very good resource at a very reasonable price. 

Would also recommend the Code Master series for Masonry by SK Ghosh Associates as a good cheat sheet type reference.

Many thanks deviationz for your suggestions. Just ordered the second one. Do you have any suggestion for Structural Wood Design reference textbook ? I have heard that Breyer's book is the best. Any recommandation ?

Breyer's book is perhaps the best resource out there. There is some good general material (webinars, powerpoints) available for free on American Wood Council's website and also on Woodworks's website. They will help you with wood as a design material, if you're like me and don't have much experience with wood.
