Seismic Design of Masonry using the 2011 MSJC Code
This web seminar was originally aired on March 27, 2012, and is being offered in DVD format now with the full audio-visual experience. The seminar addresses the design and detailing of masonry for seismic loads. The code background of this design is first reviewed (2012 International Building Code, ASCE 7-10, and the 2011 MSJC Code). The seminar includes calculation of design seismic loads, design of essential elements, and prescriptive seismic detailing. The seminar is accompanied by PowerPoint handouts, design spreadsheets, and comprehensive notes with example problems.
Professor Klingner received his academic degrees (BS, MS and PhD) from the University of California in Berkeley. His field of specialization is structural enginMeering, with emphasis on the analytical and experimental investigation of the dynamic response of structures, earthquake-resistant design of masonry and concrete structures, and anchorage to concrete. Since 1977, he has been a faculty member in the Department of Structural Engineering at the University of Texas in Austin, where he teaches undergraduate and graduate classes on structural analysis, dynamics, and the behavior and design of masonry and reinforced concrete structures. He conducts investigation in those areas, and has authored or co-authored more than 80 refereed journal articles, 40 books or book chapters, and 500 other technical publications. Currently, he conducts investigations of the performance-based seismic design of masonry, of autoclaved aerated concrete masonry, and of reinforced concrete bridge decks. Since 2004, he has been Associate Department Chair, in charge of the Architectural Engineering program. He takes a leading role in the activities of many technical committees of the US and other countries, including the American Concrete Institute, The Masonry Society, and the American Society for Testing and Materials. For the period 2002-2008, he was Chair of the Masonry Standards Joint Committee, sponsored by The Masonry Society, the American Concrete Institute, and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
