Structural Masonry Course with ETABS - Module 1

This course consists of advanced theoretical and practical development of Structural Masonry Walls. Everything related to the regulations will be explained in detail: Regulation for the Design and Construction of Structural Masonry Buildings R-027

The example prescribed by the aforementioned regulation will be developed, with the intention that the participant understands in depth the philosophy of the R-027 standard, all of the latter through an Excel table that will be delivered to the participant. In addition, the phenomenon of (Short column effect) will be explained where we will see that this phenomenon is applied in Masonry Walls and must be handled with great caution in the projects.

Two methods of assigning steel areas will be explained in the most advanced software on the market in ETABS 17.0.1 Structural Calculation, where the results of the software will be checked manually. The solution to the torsion of beams that connect Structural Masonry Walls will be presented. With all these concepts in mind, participants will be able to start a project with the Structural Masonry Methodology.
