CMU/Masonry Detailing

What is CMU/Masonry Detailing?

Welcome to Strand Consulting Corporation your gateway to harnessing the incredible capabilities of Tekla BIM software. In an era where construction demands precision, collaboration, and efficiency, Tekla BIM stands as a beacon of innovation, revolutionizing the way projects are conceptualized, designed, and built.
A reinforced concrete masonry wall is constructed by assembling masonry units for example concrete blocks or bricks, mortars, reinforcing, and sometimes grout which is a kind of soupy concrete.

CMU Wall reinforcement placed at grout height with lap length. It has vertical reinforcement with high spacing and a bond beam at floor level.

This drawing has all vertical bars, bond beam and additional reinforcement for opening and corner details.

What is Tekla BIM?

Tekla BIM is a comprehensive Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. solution that empowers architects, engineers, contractors, and other stakeholders to work collaboratively on a shared digital platform. It brings together the disciplines of design, analysis, detailing, and project management, creating a unified ecosystem that enhances decision-making and project outcomes.

Additional criteria that influence the selection of units for reinforced composite walls include

Size and number of reinforcing bars to be used and the cell space required to accommodate them.

Cover requirements may come into play when reinforcement is placed in the cells off-center. Cover requirements could affect the unit selection, based on the desired bar placement, face shell thickness, and cell dimensions.

If double curtains of vertical reinforcement are used, it is preferable to use units of the same thickness to produce a symmetrical cross- section.

Advantages of CMU/Masonry Detailing

Integrated Collaboration

Tekla BIM fosters seamless collaboration among project teams by enabling real-time information exchange. Architects, engineers, fabricators, and contractors can collectively contribute to a project’s success from concept to construction.

Precise Design and Modeling

With Tekla BIM, precision is paramount. Create intricate 3D models with accuracy, enabling clash detection, structural analysis, and visualization of complex systems. Avoid costly on-site discrepancies through virtual simulations.

Efficient Workflows

Tekla BIM optimizes workflows, eliminating silos and enhancing coordination. Changes made to the model are automatically reflected across the project, ensuring everyone is on the same page and reducing the risk of errors.

Enhanced Visualization
