The “Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures” is the industry consensus for design and construction of masonry structures. Among the subjects covered are: definitions, contract documents, quality assurance, materials, placement of embedded items, analysis and design, strength and serviceability, flexural and axial loads, shear, details and development of reinforcement, walls, columns, pilasters, beams and lintels, seismic design requirements, glass unit masonry, and veneers. An empirical design method applicable to buildings meeting specific location and construction criteria are also included.
This Code, Specification and Commentaries includes numerous changes and enhancements including provisions on self consolidating grout, reformatted and clearer seismic design requirements, revised anchor bolt capacity equations, and defined inspection frequencies of key aspects of masonry construction. This edition features “bleed tabs”, revision bars, deletion arrows and movement boxes so that users of the 2005 edition will be able to quickly identify sections that have been substantively modified.
