Prestressed and Reinforced Brickwork

The paper discusses the importance of geometric sections with their significant increase in section modules and concurrent resistance to bending. The application of prestressing further massively increases the bending resistance. The other spin-offs of ductility, increased shear resistance are briefly mentioned. The paper encourages the application of reinforced hollow blockwork and stresses the need for further research in both prestressed and reinforced masonry. W.G. Curtin
