Calculates Masonry Bearing Walls.  Two methods in this spreadsheet: Slender Masonry Wall design as well as Working Stress Design.

Masonry Wall

  • Analyzes and designs a masonry bearing wall with out-of-plane wind/seismic loads. Can enter a single vertical point load(beam support). Vertical loads can have eccentricity. Strength Design is used with P-Delta analysis. The same wall is calculated using Working Stress Design on another tab.
