Structural Engineering Design of reinforced masonry walls
and piers by stress compatibility methods of American Concrete
Institute Design Code 530 (ACI 530). The analysis is carried out by iterating the compatibility equations until a balance kd is found. The balance kd is displayed as well as masonry
compressive bending stress and steel tensile stress.
The answer provided is an exact solution. Given the number of iterations required, the analysis can only be performed properly by computing.
