Abstract
With todays up-to-date architectural style, there are commonly occuring complications with masonry construction. This architectural style and a growing demand for illuminated space require buildings to be designed with larger facade openings. The diculty with this is that the masonry superstructure will be loaded by large shear forces, while at the same
time its shear capacity is limited. To handle this issue today there are dierent types of methods but they are either economically unsustainable or not good enough.
The purpose of this masters thesis was to investigate and nd a solution to this problem that is sustainable from both an economic and practical perspective. First of all a comprehension regarding masonry limitations was... (More)

The purpose of this masters thesis was to investigate and nd a solution to this problem that is sustainable from both an economic and practical perspective. First of all a comprehension regarding masonry limitations was established, to be able to set realistic goals. Then a survey was carried through to weigh dierent alternatives against each other.
Thereafter, the work was followed out by two mathematical parameter studies which were based on a brick-concrete combined beam and a straight-out reinforced concrete beam. The rst research proved that masonry is quite limited in its ability to work as a beam structure. The study of reinforced concrete beams with appropriate geometry gave indications that pointed to that the desired resistance was achievable. (Less)
