Stone Masonry Anchorage Design

Stone Masonry Anchorage Design

Stone Masonry Anchorage Design

I am looking for some good books to provide some design guidance the subject. Any suggestions?

I found these listed by ASTM:
Modern Stone Cladding: Design and Installation of Exterior Dimension Stone Systems by Lewis (1995)
New Stone Technology, Design, and Construction for Exterior Wall Systems by Donaldson (1988)
Dimension Stone Cladding: Design, Construction, Evaluation, and Repair by Hoigard (2000)
Dimension Stone Use in Building Construction by Hoigard, Scheffler (2007)


RE: Stone Masonry Anchorage Design

Do you mean for anchoring to stone masonry, or actually anchoring stone masonry to things? If the former, I know companies like Hilti, Dewalt/Powers, and Simpson are sometimes willing to physically come to your location, do in-situ testing and get you loads to use. They chalk it up as marketing to sell their products. If the later, I don't know!

RE: Stone Masonry Anchorage Design

Good question, G! I am looking for information on anchoring stone masonry to a building structure such as a concrete wall, CMU wall or steel stud wall.

Thanks, PE. I found that book on Amazon. I also found another book by the same author "Masonry Veneer 2nd Edition".

Spiffy freebie: Link. Who's gonna know stone better than the druids?

I like to debate structural engineering theory -- a lot. If I challenge you on something, know that I'm doing so because I respect your opinion enough to either change it or adopt it.

RE: Stone Masonry Anchorage Design

You weren't kidding about the druids!
