About The Provider

Alison is one of the world’s largest free learning platforms for education and skills training. It is a for-profit social enterprise dedicated to making it possible for anyone, to study anything, anywhere, at any time, for free online, at any subject level. Through our mission we are a catalyst for positive social change, creating opportunity, prosperity, and equality for everyone.

Alison was founded in Galway, Ireland, in 2007 and has grown organically to become a major force in free online education and skills training. Today, with more than 13 million learners in 195 countries, Alison is changing how the world learns and up-skills.

They are committed to equality and access to education and skills training irrespective of gender, geography, economic status or any other barriers that can so often stunt potential. So they offer a range of free courses that meet the many diverse needs of our learners. The UN declared in Article 26 of the 1946 Declaration of Human Rights that “Education shall be free…”. This statement will always inspire us.

Alison was founded by Alison CEO, Mike Feerick. Mike is a businessman, but one with a difference. He believes in social impact, and that you can build a financially successful business focused on meeting a huge global social need, making education and skills training more accessible for everyone. He invites anyone who believes that too, to support the Alison mission.

Alison is free of charge to you. But it’s still a business – albeit a socially-focused one. We are a social enterprise making our money through advertising, merchandise, and the sale of Certificates and Diplomas, should a graduate choose to buy one.

This course introduces you to the design of masonry components and the structural design framework of masonry. This course explains the interconnection between different codes of practice and the criteria for the seismic design of buildings. This course also describes design with respect to the code dealing with permissible stress approach for unreinforced masonry. You will also be introduced to the categories of buildings and the design seismic coefficient.

This course outlines the requirements for reinforcement and detailing as well as seismic design requirements. This course also discusses the design for reinforcement of shear and the process of estimating actual shear stress. You will learn about the aspect ratio of masonry walls, the design for anchorage and development length.

This course also explains the structural design framework of masonry and the design considerations in masonry as far as IS 1905. You will learn about the Mann-Muller theory and its limitations. You will be introduced to some guidelines for reinforced masonry as well as some new terminologies. You will also learn about the categories of buildings and the design seismic coefficient. This course further explains the P-M interaction curve and its regions and the different procedures of the iterative approach.
