This note covers the inspection of structural elements typically present within buildings during their construction and/or alteration phases.
Base plates are the primary means by which steel-framed structures transmit vertical loads into their foundations.
This note concerns the design of masonry walls subject to lateral loads (i.e. those used as a cladding element). It discusses material assessment, restraint, geometry and exposure conditions. Updated in October 2016.
