1 The above table gives the average weights of completed walls of various thickness in pounds per square foot of wall face area. An
average amount has been added into these values to include the weight of bond beams and reinforcing steel. Weight of grout is
assumed at 140 pcf.

2 Equivalent solid thickness means the calculated thickness of the wall if there were not hollow cores, and is obtained by dividing the
volume of solid material in the wall by the face area of the wall. This Equivalent Solid Thickness (EST) is for the determination of area
for structural design only, e.g. fs = P/(EST)b. It is NOT to be used to obtain fire ratings. Fire rating thickness is based either on
equivalent solid thickness of ungrouted units only or solid grouted walls.

1. The above table gives the average weights of completed walls of various thickness in pounds per

2. Equvalent solid thickness means the calculated thickness of the wall if there were not hollow cores,

and is obtained by dividing the volume of solid material in the wall by the facearea of the wall.

This Equivalent Solid Thickness (EST) is for the determination of area for structural design only, e.g. fa =P/(EST)b. It is NOT to use to obtain fire ratings. Fire rating thickness is based either on equivalent solid thickness of ungrouted units only or solid grouted walls.
