Reinforced brick masonry
(R.B. Masonry) :
Composite structural material that consists of load-bearing brickwork masonry with reinforcement.
Important parameter regarding reinforced brick masonry:
Construction materials needed :
Applications of reinforced brick masonry :
Advantages of reinforced brick masonry over conventional brick masonry :
Reinforced brick masonry have higher ductility and stiffness than ordinary masonry work.
Basically hollow brick is used in reinforces brick masonry, and reinforcement bars are provided in the hole of the block (that bar are in the vertical direction). And another reinforcement wire is provided horizontally in between upper and lower course of brick masonry.
After construction of reinforcing brick masonry, we should provide a plaster of a minimum total thickness of 15 mm to protect the reinforcement bar from weathering action.
Reinforced Brick Masonry consists of brick masonry, which incorporates steel reinforcement embedded in mortar. This masonry has increased resistance to forces that they produce tensile and shear stress.
