This manual supports the design of plain masonry in building structures to BS EN 1996 Parts 1 and 2:2005/6 (Eurocode 6) for UK construction.

It can be purchased as an individual title, or as part of a seven-volume Eurocode package.

The manual focuses on structures that do not rely on bending in masonry for their overall stability (eg sway frame buildings), although the design of individual masonry elements subject to lateral loading and involving bending for their resistance, is included. Specifically, the manual covers:

  • choice of structural form (and conceptual design)

  • Choice of materials

  • General principles of limit state design for masonry walls and columns

  • Design of loadbearing masonry

  • Design of laterally loaded masonry (and masonry infill panels to framed structures)

  • Details and construction

  • Design for fire

  • Design for accidental damage

Nationally Determined Parameters from the UK National Annex have informed the design formulae presented.
