Reinforced Masonry Wall Calculator to AS3700-2018

Easy to use online Reinforced Masonry Wall software for Australian & New Zealand standards.


Design and analyse a reinforced masonry wall to the latest Australian standards using the ClearCalcs Reinforced Masonry Wal to AS3700-2018 calculator. The calculator provides live results for compressive and concentrated load, bending and moment, and shear. The design is for a single lead wall, assumes no openings along the wall, and allows one maximum concentrated load to be present. Bending capacity is based on out of plane bending. Pier calculations must be done separately. Reinforced masonry walls are a combination of bond beams and vertically reinforced masonry. All reinforcements must be anchored, with a maximum of two vertical reinforcement layers.
