scope:

This New Zealand Standard specifies minimum requirements for the specific design of reinforced concrete masonry structures. It is also applicable to the design of parts of other buildings, which are constructed of reinforced concrete masonry and also for the use of prestressed concrete masonry in accordance with the limit state design method.

This Standard applies to all designed reinforced concrete masonry construction, and to construction where concrete masonry forms only part of the construction. Where the concrete masonry is not part of either the vertical or horizontal load-carrying systems, design of such "mixed" construction is straightforward; where masonry and other materials act in conjunction in resisting loads care may be needed to determine behaviour, particularly in the post-elastic range.

This Standard applies to buildings which in the NZBC are defined as "any temporary or permanent movable or immovable structure (including any structure intended for occupation by people, animals, machinery, or chattels); and includes any mechanical, electrical, or other system, and any utility systems, attached to and forming part of the structure whose proper operation is necessary for compliance with the NZBC"; such as retaining walls. For other structures the designer should investigate the extent of applicability of the Standard to the particular structure, and seek the necessary approval.

General structural design and design loadings for buildings for compliance with the NZBC, are given in AS/NZS 1170.

Where construction methods are proposed which will differ from those of NZS 4210, an evaluation of those methods should be made before considering whether, or to what extent, this Standard should be used as a guide to design.
