The brick veneer/steel stud wall system is one of the most common building exteriors for commercial and institutional structures. The system offers many benefits, such as attractive appearance, high resistance to water penetration, low thermal transmission rate and low maintenance. In this lesson, you are required to study the Technical Note 28B - Brick Veneer, Steel Stud Walls published by Brick Institute of America (BIA). This technical document addresses the considerations and recommendations for the design, detailing, materials selection and construction of brick veneer/steel stud panel walls. The information presented pertains to behavior of veneer, differential movement, ties and anchors, air space, detailing, selection of materials and construction techniques.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
