Valuable insight is given into Eurocode 6, the code that addresses unreinforced and reinforced masonry structures, where reinforcement is added to provide ductility, strength or improve serviceability, and provides the structural rules for designing a composite material comprising masonry units and mortar. This detailed guide complements the Eurocode standard, dealing with the various sub-sections of EN 1996-1-1, and explaining areas where change has overtaken the traditional approach used in the previous British Standards. The UK National Annexes for EN 1996-1-1 are also covered.

This guide is essential reading for:

- civil and structural engineers
- code-drafting committees
- clients
- structural-design students
- public authorities
in fact, everyone who will be affected by the Eurocodes.
