Masonry Fin Walls

This paper describes one of the authors’ developments in ‘engineered’ masonry construction-the fin wall. The structural form of the fin wall is described and its development for use in tall, single-storey buildings detailed. Present uses, advantages, and potential future applications, are outlined, in particular the present and future use of the post-tensioned masonry fin. The theoretical and structural design considerations are discussed and the need for engineering research is highlighted. W.G. Curtin, G. Shaw, J.K. Beck and G.I. Parkinson
