The seminar primarily focuses on design of shear walls in accordance with the 2011 TMS 402 Code, but the effects of changes in the 2013 TMS 402 Code will also be examined.
Development of an interaction diagram for both partially grouted and fully grouted walls is covered. Shear provisions is examined, including the major changes from the 2008 TMS 402 Code.

Provisions for special reinforced masonry shear walls is also discussed and the benefits and advantages of using this system are highlighted.
