Definition: construction composed of shaped or molded units, usually small enough to be handled by one person and composed of stone, ceramic brick or tile, concrete, glass, adobe, or the like.- ACI Concrete Terminology

The most important structural use of masonry around the world is in the construction of bearing walls of houses. It is also used extensively in the construction of enclosure and partition walls in all types of buildings, and as infill walls to stiffen frame structures. Materials used in masonry construction are masonry units, mortar, grout, and reinforcement (deformed steel reinforcing bars, deformed reinforcing wire or wire fabric, and plain bars and wires.)
