reinforced concrete masonry

reinforced concrete masonry

Concrete masonry construction in which steel reinforcement (in excess of a specified minimum percentage) is so embedded that the materials act together in resisting forces. Where hollow concrete masonry units are used, certain cores (including those containing the embedded reinforcement) are filled solidly with grout. In multiwithe construction in which the reinforcement is embedded between the withes, the space between the withes is filled solidly with grout.
