Abstract:Describes the design practice of masonry structures in the Americas. Emphasis of this study is on discussion of regulations for seismic resistance and design of masonry structures. Throughout the continent, unreinforced, reinforced, and confined masonry structures are used. Design practices evidence similarities in the methods used for the proportioning of reinforced and confined masonry in different countries. From the point of view of seismic design, different approaches are used, which lead to different strength and stiffness requirements.
