Correspondence on A Discussion of 'Yieldlines' in Unreinforced Masonry by R. Lovegrove

Mr A. N. Beal (M) (R. H. Thomason & Partners): Mr Lovegrove’s thoughtful paper is most welcome, because we cannot continue indefinitely with a method of masonry design which is not based on sound theory. However, he accepts a little too readily the proposition that the yieldline-based moment coefficients in BS5628, Table 9, have been verified by experimental results.
