Abstract:
This code covers the design of concrete masonry structures. It is written in such a form that it may be incorporated verbatim or by reference in a general building code. The quality and testing of materials used are covered by reference to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications. Among the subjects covered are: permits and drawings; determination of masonry strength; inspection; mixing and placing of motar and grout;laying of masonry units; control joints; wall bracing; embedded pipes and anchorage devices; reinforcement placement and anchorage; spacing, splicing, and development lengths for reinforcement; analysis and design; allowable stresses; deflection and shear; walls; columns; pilasters; composite construction; cavity walls; special provisions for unusual loadings.
