Product Overview ( Overview ) :

This European Standard, a part of the BS EN 1996 Eurocode series, deals with the requirements for resistance, serviceability and durability of structures. It does not cover the special requirements of seismic design.

This standard provides simplified calculation methods to facilitate the design of the following unreinforced masonry walls, subject to certain conditions of application:

  • walls subjected to vertical loading and wind loading
  • walls subjected to concentrated loads
  • shear walls
  • basement walls subjected to lateral earth pressure and vertical loads
  • walls subjected to lateral loads but not subjected to vertical loads.

The rules given in this standard are consistent with those given in BS EN 1996-1-1, but are more conservative in respect of the conditions and limitations of its use.

This standard applies only to those masonry structures, or parts thereof, that are described in BS EN 1996-1-1 and BS EN 1996-2.

The simplified calculation methods given in this standard do not cover the design for accidental situations.
