  • Course Description: AEC Daily: The Next Generation of Concrete Masonry


    The inherent properties of concrete masonry, including strength, durability, and fire safety, have been well documented, though a perception of high cost persists. Due to significant changes to codes and standards that increased the flexibility of concrete masonry structural design, this construction method may also offer cost-effective and energy-efficient alternative solutions. This course reviews changes to ASTM C90 and the masonry design standard and includes a discussion on the benefits and opportunities these requirements bring. 



    Learning Objective

    Review changes to ASTM C90 (the product standard for concrete masonry units) for web requirements and compressive strength and describe their impact on structural design to ensure safety and security.

    Summarize research on the relationship between CMU strength and assembly strength and how this research has been incorporated into design standards and the building code.

    Evaluate how increasing the base design strength of concrete masonry assemblies and modifying the standard web design can lead to more project sustainability, efficient use of materials, and constructability.

    Compare costs of various construction assembly types.
