A loadbearing wall is defined by its role as a primary element in the composite masonry assembly with a continuous air space separating at least two wythes
Load bearing masonry wall; Reinforced masonry wall; Hollow/cavity masonry wall; Composite masonry wall; Post-tensioned masonry wall.
Composite, multiwythe grouted masonry is a versatile solution for a variety of construction situations. Variable wall widths from 8 inches to 24 inches, or more,
In composite masonry walls, two wythes of masonry units are constructed bonding with each other. While one wythe can
In this type of composite masonry a wall is constructed in brick work and the stone slabs are used in facing. The stones used may be natural or
The composite masonry may be adopted due to two reasons. 1 improvement in the appearance of walls,etc., 2 use of available materials, to obtain optimum
