Comparison of the load predictions for vertically loaded masonry walls using BS 5628 and EC6

March 2010 saw the introduction of new structural design codes across Europe and from that date existing British Standards were no longer updated and maintained. In this paper comparisons between these British and European standards have been undertaken to evaluate differences between strength predictions with respect to vertically loaded walls.
