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 legally adopted building code. 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 and a prescriptive method applicable to buildings meeting specific location and construction criteria are also included. The quality, inspection, testing, and placement of materials used in construction are covered by reference to ACI 530.1/ASCE 6/TMS 602 Specification and other standards. 530.1-02 This Specification for Masonry Structures (ACI 530.1-02/ASCE 6-02/TMS 602-02) is written as a master specification and is required by the Code to control materials, labor, and construction. Thus, this Specification covers minimum construction requirements for masonry in structures. Included are quality assurance requirements for materials; the placing, bonding, and anchoring of masonry; and the placement of grout and of reinforcement. This Specification is meant to be modified and referenced in the Project Manual.
