Checklists are helpful for structural engineers to ensure that all design considerations are met. This SE University session will focus on developing a checklist for masonry design. Among the considerations that will go into the makeup of the checklist are ensuring that the designs be: optimal and efficient, safe and reliable, and constructible. As the checklist is developed, each item from the checklist will be supported by current industry standards, including TMS 402/602-16, and NCMA TEK Guides 10-2D and 10-3.
Learning Objectives:
  • Develop checklist of important items for masonry design and construction.
  • Review important aspect of masonry design criteria.
  • Discuss best practices for element design.
  • Consider the impact of efficient and effective designs in case studies.


Handout and registration emails for this session will be sent to SE University companies on Friday, April 3rd.
