Warwick Colefax BE(Hons) DipTechEng(Struct) MIEAust CPEng RPEQ

140 mortarless (design tables) unchamfered blocks

In this mortarless masonry Design Manual Part 3, design tables are provided for combinations of block grades (unconfined compressive strengths) and core fill grout strengths (28 day cylinder compressive strengths) as follows:

BLOCK GRADES: 15 & 20 MPa
GROUT: 15, 20 & 25 MPa

DISCLAIMER:

This mortarless masonry Design Manual has been compiled to assist structural engineers to quickly and efficiently prepare designs and details of load-bearing mortarless masonry structures and elements. Numerous design tables have been provided and these cover a broad range of typical design applications. While every care has been taken to ensure the information provided is accurate and complete for the design situations and actions covered, the information should only be used by experienced practising structural engineers, and all engineers should familiarise themselves with the full contents of the applicable Standards to ensure no requirement is overlooked. Mortarless Pty Ltd, its licensees and the author accept no liability whatsoever arising out of the use or misuse of the information provided in this design manual.
