If the ratio of center to center spacing of intersecting walls to actual thickness of intersecting wall is more than 20, then the stiffening coefficient for wall proper will be

Where a structural component or a system is providing lateral support to five or more walls or columns, the lateral load to be resisted may be taken as __________ of the total vertical load on the most heavily loaded wall or column in the group.

If ‘H’ is the height of wall between centers of supports, then the effective height of wall where concrete floors have a bearing on wall irrespective of the direction of span will be

Cement mortars richer than 1 : 3 are not used in masonry because
(i) There is no gain in strength of masonry
(ii) There is high shrinkage
(iii) They are prone to segregation

If the eccentricity ratio is more than $$\frac{1}{{24}}$$, then increase in the permissible stress in the design of wall subjected to eccentric loading as per code is

A 200 mm thick brick masonry wall made of modular bricks carries an axial load of 30 kN/m from wall above and an eccentric load of 20 kN/m from RCC floor acting at a distance of 47.5 mm from the centre line of the wall. The resultant eccentricity ratio is

The bending stress in a wall or column subjected to effective vertical load need not be considered, if the eccentricity ratio is

Consider the following statements:
(i) Masonry in rich cement mortar though having good strength with high shrinkage is much liable for surface cracks.
(ii) Lime mortar possesses poor workability and poor water retentivity and also suffers high shrinkage.
(iii) Masonry in lime mortar has better resistance against rain penetration and is less liable to crack when compared to masonry in cement mortar.
Which of these statements are correct?

Assertion A : Lime based mortars give higher ratio of brickwork strength to mortar strength as compared to non-lime mortar.
Reason R : Lime based mortars have lower bond strength as compared to non-lime mortars.
