This course provides an overview of the design of masonry structures using concrete masonry units. It covers both working stress and strength design of typical elements such as walls and lintels and simple structures.
A. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course.
Masonry is the most widely used building material in Florida. As such, structural engineers need to be familiar with its design.
B. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service?
This course was previously offered as an undergraduate course from 1988-2003 Timber and Masonry Design). Students petitioned to have it restored.
C. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?
Yes - it has been offered 3 times to date
D. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)
