Proposed Code: This code covers the design and construction of masonry structures. It is written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a general building code. Among the subjects covered are: permits and drawings; quality assurance; materials; placing embedded items; analysis and design; strength and servicability; flexural and axial loads; shear; details and development of reinforcement; walls; columns; pilasters; beams and lintels; and an empirical design metod applicable to buildings meeting specific location and construction criteria. The quality, inspection, testing, and placement of materials used in construction are covered by reference to ACI-ASCE 530.1 specifications and the appropriate ASTM standards.
