2101.1 Scope. The materials, design, construction and quality control of masonry shall be in accordance with this chapter.
2101.2 Design Methods. Masonry shall comply with the provisions of one of the following design methods in this chapter as well as the requirements of Sections 2101 through 2105.
2101.2.1 Working stress design. Masonry designed by the working stress design method shall comply with the provisions of Sections 2106 and 2107.
2101.2.2 Strength design. Masonry designed by the strength design method shall comply with the provisions of Sections 2106 and 2108.
2101.2.3 Empirical design. Masonry designed by the empirical design method shall comply with the provisions of Sections 2106 and 2109.
2101.2.4 Glass masonry. Glass masonry shall comply with the provisions of Section 2110.
2101.3 Definitions. For the purpose of this chapter, certain terms are defined as follows:
Bedded Area is the area of the surface of a masonry unit which is in contact with mortar in the plane of the joint.
Effective Area of Reinforcement is the cross-sectional area of reinforcement multiplied by the cosine of the angle between the reinforcement and the direction for which effective area is to be determined.
Gross Area is the total cross-sectional area of a specified section.
Net Area is the gross cross-sectional area minus the area of ungrouted cores, notches, cells and unbedded areas. Net area is the actual surface area of a cross section of masonry.
Transformed Area is the equivalent area of one material to a second based on the ratio of moduli of elasticity of the first material to the second.
Adhesion Bond is the adhesion between masonry units and mortar or grout.
Reinforcing Bond is the adhesion between steel reinforcement and mortar or grout.
BOND BEAM is a horizontal grouted element within masonry in which reinforcement is embedded.
CELL is a void space having a gross cross-sectional area greater than 1 1/2 square inches (967 ).
CLEANOUT is an opening to the bottom of a grout space of sufficient size and spacing to allow the removal of debris.
COLLAR JOINT is the vertical, longitudinal, mortar or grouted joint between wythes.
COLUMN, REINFORCED, is a vertical structural member in which both the steel and masonry resist compression.
COLUMN, UNREINFORCED, is a vertical structural member whose horizontal dimension measured at right angles to the thickness does not exceed three times the thickness.
Actual Dimensions are the measured dimensions of a designated item. The actual dimension shall not vary from the specified dimension by more than the amount allowed in the appropriate standard of quality in Section 2102.
Nominal Dimensions of masonry units are equal to its specified dimensions plus the thickness of the joint with which the unit is laid.
Specified Dimensions are the dimensions specified for the manufacture or construction of masonry, masonry units, joints or any other component of a structure.
GROUT LIFT is an increment of grout height within the total pour; a pour may consist of one or more grout lifts.
GROUT POUR is the total height of masonry wall to be grouted prior to the erection of additional masonry. A grout pour will consist of one or more grout lifts.
Grouted Hollow-unit Masonry is that form of grouted masonry construction in which certain designated cells of hollow units are continuously filled with grout.
Grouted Multiwythe Masonry is that form of grouted masonry construction in which the space between the wythes is solidly or periodically filled with grout.
Bed Joint is the mortar joint that is horizontal at the time the masonry units are placed.
Collar Joint is the vertical, longitudinal, mortar or grouted joint.
Head Joint is the mortar joint having a vertical transverse plane.
MASONRY UNIT is brick, tile, stone, glass block or concrete block conforming to the requirements specified in Section 2102.
Hollow-masonry Unit is a masonry unit whose net cross-sectional area in every plane parallel to the bearing surface is less than 75 percent of the gross cross-sectional area in the same plane.
Solid-masonry Unit is a masonry unit whose net cross-sectional area in every plane parallel to the bearing surface is 75 percent or more of the gross cross-sectional area in the same plane.
PRISM is an assemblage of masonry units and mortar with or without grout used as a test specimen for determining properties of the masonry.
REINFORCED MASONRY is that form of masonry construction in which reinforcement acting in conjunction with the masonry is used to resist forces.
SHELL is the outer portion of a hollow masonry unit as placed in masonry.
Bonded Wall is a masonry wall in which two or more wythes are bonded to act as a structural unit.
Cavity Wall is a wall containing continuous air space with a minimum width of 2 inches (51 mm) and a maximum width of 4 1/2 inches (114 mm) between wythes which are tied with metal ties.
WALL TIE is a mechanical metal fastener which connects wythes of masonry to each other or to other materials.
WEB is an interior solid portion of a hollow-masonry unit as placed in masonry.
WYTHE is the portion of
a wall which is one masonry unit in thickness. A collar joint
is not considered a wythe.
