A valuable insight is given into the code that addresses unreinforced masonry and reinforced masonry where the reinforcement is added to provide ductility, strength or improve serviceability and provides the structural rules for designing a composite material comprising masonry units and mortar.

This book complements the Eurocode standard by explaining the areas where change has overtaken the traditional approach used in the previous British Standard. Includes UK National Annex for EN 1996-1-1.
