Abstract: The trowel, level, and mixer are essential tools for masonry. Increasingly, so are the personal computer and the growing selection of software to aid in masonry design.Now in most architectural and engineering offices, computers make it easier to design with and specify masonry. Dynamic modelling, finite element analysis, and other techniques not practical without computers enable engineers to study specific design loads and conditions and use masonry in ways not previously possible.
