Grouted Masonry Cells

Grouted Masonry Cells

Can anyone point me to a table that gives weights of different thickness CMU walls with various cells grouted (8" oc, 16" oc, 24" oc, 32" oc, etc.)?

RE: Grouted Masonry Cells

Also, I find a lot of helpful information at www.ncma.org , the National Concrete Masonry Association.  Select your state, then choose a supplier, and do a keyword search through the TEK reports.

RE: Grouted Masonry Cells

Thanks guys!

RE: Grouted Masonry Cells

I typically use properties found in NCMA TEK 14-1A (issued 2003). It breaks down the properties for both Average cross-section (stiffness) and Net cross-section (stress calculations).

RE: Grouted Masonry Cells

It's also covered in ASCE7-02 Table C3.1 "Minimum Design Dead Loads"
