What is horizontal reinforcement ?

Horizontal joint reinforcement is placed in the horizontal mortar joints of the masonry wall. It's primary function is to minimize shrinkage, temperature, and settlement cracks in masonry but it also helps transfer shear load to the steel.

How to Calculate Minimum Horizontal Reinforcement?
