Composite masonry. masonry is the one which is constructed out of two or more types of building units or of different types of building materials. The composite masonry may be adopted due to two reasons. 1) improvement in the appearance of walls,etc., 2)use of available materials, to obtain optimum economy. Composite
Composite, multiwythe grouted masonry is a versatile solution for a variety of construction situations. Variable wall widths from 8 inches to 24 inches, or more, in 1 inch increments, are facilitated by the length of wall tie used. Note that for normal design conditions, standard types of hollow load-bearing cmu are best for wall
Definition of composite wall: A wall composed of multiple vertical layers of masonry, each one unit thick, in which one layer is different from the others in type or grade of stone/brick or mortar used.

Posttensioned Masonry Walls buildings whose construction is defined by building codes as ordinary construction: exterior masonry loadbearing walls with
Masonry walls are the most durable part of any building or structure. They provide strength,, durability to the structure and also helps to control indoor.
Technical Notes is appropriate for both types of wall systems. Some parts of the country use the term "reinforced cavity walls" to denote a multi-wythe masonry wall with grout placed between the wythes. This should actually be considered a multiwythe grouted masonry wall. Since the definition of a cavity wall includes an air
When working with composite masonry walls you'll be putting together two wythes of masonry units by bonding each of them together. One of the Wythes can be hollow bricks and the other Wythe can be either stone or brick. A Wythe is a section of masonry that is one unit in thickness in a vertical section
Masonry has high compressive strength under vertical loads but has low tensile strength (against twisting or stretching) unless reinforced. The tensile strength of masonry walls can be increased by thickening the wall, or by building masonry piers (vertical columns or ribs) at intervals. Where practical, steel reinforcements
These ties are used to connect multiple wythes of masonry, often of different materials; anchor masonry veneer to backing systems other than masonry; and connect composite masonry walls. This Technical Notes addresses the selection, specification and installation of wall tie systems for use in brick masonry construction.
