In the masonry unit standards and in national legislation, some properties need to be declared based on a certain fractile and confidence level. To demonstrate compliance with that a statistical tool can be used.
The purpose of this Technical Report is to exemplify how a statistical tool can be used in practice. This document should not contradict nor extend the scope of the work and role of a Notified Body, nor impose additional burdens on the manufacturer, beyond those laid down in the Construction Products Regulation and the product standards.
Mechanical and other properties of building materials and components are in the report described by random variables with a certain type of probability distribution. The popular normal distribution (Laplace-Gauss distribution) is given in Annex A. Normal distribution may be used to approximate many actual symmetrical distributions. When a remarkable asymmetry is observed, then another type of distribution reflecting this asymmetry should be considered, leading to a more complex method to demonstrate compliance with the product standard. More information on the normality test of Shapiro-Wilk is given in Annex D.

a)   lintels completely made on site;
b)   lintels of which the tensile parts are made on site;
c)   timber lintels;
d)   natural stone lintels, not reinforced.
Linear components spanning clear openings greater than 4,5 m in masonry walls and linear components intended for use independently in a structural role (e.g. beams) are not covered by this standard.

This European Standard specifies the requirements for masonry bed joint reinforcement for structural use (see 5.2.1) and for non-structural use (see 5.2.2).
Where products are intended for use in cavity wall construction, this European Standard covers only the performance of the meshwork as reinforcement in bed joints and not its performance as wall ties across the cavity.
This European Standard is not applicable to:
a)   products in the form of individual bars or rods;
b)   products formed from materials other than specified grades of austenitic stainless steel, austenitic ferritic stainless steel, zinc pre-coated steel sheet or zinc coated steel wire with or without organic coating.
NOTE   Annex ZA refers only to welded wire meshwork intended for structural use referred to in 5.2.1 as there are no known regulated requirements for products of this family for non-structural use.

Eurocode 6 applies to the design of buildings and civil engineering works, or parts thereof, in unreinforced, reinforced, prestressed and confined masonry. Eurocode 6 deals only with the requirements for resistance, serviceability and durability of structures. Other requirements, for example, concerning thermal or sound insulation, are not considered. Execution is covered to the extent that is necessary to indicate the quality of the construction materials and products that should be used and the standard of workmanship on site needed to comply with the assumptions made in the design rules. Eurocode 6 does not cover the special requirements of seismic design. Provisions related to such requirements are given in Eurocode 8 "Design of structures in seismic regions" which complements, and is consistent with, Eurocode 6. Numerical values of the actions on buildings and civil engineering works to be taken into account in the design are not given in Eurocode 6. They are provided in Eurocode 1 "Actions on structures".

(1)P This Part 3 of Eurocode 6 provides simplified calculation methods to facilitate the design of the following unreinforced masonry walls, subject to certain conditions of application:
   walls subjected to vertical loading and wind loading;
   walls subjected to concentrated loads;
   shear walls;
   basement walls subjected to lateral earth pressure and vertical loads;
   walls subjected to lateral loads but not subjected to vertical loads.
(2)P The rules given in Part 3 are consistent with those given in Part 1-1, but are more conservative in respect of the conditions and limitations of their use.
(3) For those types of masonry structure or parts of structures not covered by (1), the design shall be based on Part 1-1.
(4) This Part 3 applies only to those masonry structures, or parts thereof, that are described in Part 1-1 and Part 2.
(5) The simplified calculation methods given in this Part 3 do not cover the design for accidental situations.

(1)P The scope of Eurocode 6 for Masonry Structures as given in 1.1.1 of EN 1996-1-1 applies also to this Part 2.
(2)P Part 2 of Eurocode 6 gives basic rules for the selection of materials and execution of masonry to enable it to comply with the design assumptions of the other parts of Eurocode 6. With the exception of the items given in 1.1(3)P, the scope of Part 2 deals with ordinary aspects of masonry design and execution including:
   the selection of masonry materials;
   factors affecting the performance and durability of masonry;
   resistance of buildings to moisture penetration;
   storage, preparation and use of materials on site;
   the execution of masonry;
   masonry protection during execution;
NOTE 1. Where general guidance only is given, additional guidance based on local conditions and practice may be made available in non contradictory complementary documents which may be referred to in the National Annex.
NOTE 2. The scope of Eurocode 6 excludes seismic, thermal and acoustic functional performance of masonry structures;
(3)P Part 2 of Eurocode 6 does not cover the following items:
   those aspects of masonry covered in other parts of Eurocode 6;
   aesthetic aspects;
   applied finishes;
   health & safety of persons engaged in the design or execution of masonry;
   the environmental effects of masonry buildings, civil engineering works and structures on their surroundings.

(1)P This Part 1-2 of EN 1996 deals with the design of masonry structures for the accidental situation of fire exposure, and is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 1996-1-1, EN 1996-2, 1996-3 and EN 1991-1-2. This part 1-2 only identifies differences from, or supplements to, normal temperature design.
(2)P This Part 1-2 deals only with passive methods of fire protection. Active methods are not covered.
(3)P This Part 1-2 applies to masonry structures which, for reasons of general fire safety, are required to fulfil certain functions when exposed to fire, in terms of:
-   avoiding premature collapse of the structure (load bearing function)
-   limiting fire spread (flames, hot gases, excessive heat) beyond designated areas (separating function)
(4)P This Part 1-2 gives principles and application rules for designing structures for specified requirements in respect of the aforementioned functions and levels of performance.
(5)P This Part 1-2 applies to structures, or parts of structures, that are within the scope of EN 1996-1-1, EN 1996-2 and EN 1996-3 and are designed accordingly.
(6)P This Part 1-2 does not cover masonry built with Natural Stone units to EN771-6
(7)P This Part 1-2 deals with the following:
-   non-loadbearing internal walls.
-   non-loadbearing external walls.
-   loadbearing internal walls with separating or non-separating functions.
-   loadbearing external walls with separating or non-separating functions.
