Use of Bed-Joint Reinforcement in Brick Buildings to Resist Settlement

The paper proposes some rules for selecting bed-joint reinforcement in brick facade walls which may be susceptible to settlement. Loading criteria are adopted in preference to deformation criteria, and the importance of specifying a minimum amount of reinforcement and of the need to provide ductility is emphasised. The use of the equations is demonstrated on a four-storey wall. Professor I.A. MacLeod
