Product Overview ( Overview ) :

This European Standard, a part of the BS EN 1996 Eurocode series, gives basic rules for the selection of materials and execution of masonry to enable it to conform to the design assumptions of the other parts of Eurocode 6.

This European Standard deals with ordinary aspects of masonry design and execution including:

  • the selection of masonry materials
  • factors affecting the performance and durability of masonry
  • resistance of buildings to moisture penetration
  • storage, preparation and use of materials on site
  • the execution of masonry
  • masonry protection during execution.

This standard excludes seismic, thermal and acoustic functional performance of masonry structures. This standard does not cover the following items:

  • those aspects of masonry covered in other parts of Eurocode 6
  • aesthetic aspects
  • applied finishes
  • health and safety of persons engaged in the design or execution of masonry
  • the environmental effects of masonry buildings, civil engineering works and structures on their surroundings.
