STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF PRE-INSULATED CONCRETE MASONRY

TUESDAY, May 22, 2018

Speaker: David T. Biggs, Biggs Consulting Engineering

While many architects select pre-insulated concrete masonry units (CMU) for their thermal characteristics, the structural design of these systems can present challenges whenever the vertical reinforcement is not symmetrical in the wall. This presentation will identify some of the pre-insulated systems currently available and address the structural design characteristics of each. The design emphasis will be on single wythe pre-insulated CMU walls, beams and lintels.
