If you design or build with masonry construction, the new Reference Manual: Specifications for Masonry Structures, which includes the new Specifications for Masonry Structures (ACI 530.1-92/ASCE 6-92/TMS 602.92), will prove to be an unparalleled reference source. ACI 530.1-92/ASCE 6-92/TMS 602.92 covers the minimum construction requirements for masonry structures. Included is the latest state-of-the-art information on: materials; the placing, bonding, and anchoring of masonry; the placement of grout and of reinforcement. Also covered extensively are: quality assurance, determination of compressive strength and metal accessories. The new SP-115 (92) reference manual is also a compilation of selected current ASTM standards and references listed in the specification, including concrete and clay building brick; sampling and testing brick and structural clay tile; hollow load-bearing concrete masonry; grout for masonry; pre-faced concrete and calcium silicate masonry; sampling and testing concrete masonry; strength anchors in concrete and masonry elements; standard specification for mortar; standard test method for drying shrinkage of concrete block; and the standard specification for prefabricated masonry panels. New in SP-115 (92), are Standard Specifications for Tolerances for Concrete Construction and Materials, (ACI 117-90), Standard Specification for Zinc (Hot-Dip Galvanized) Coatings on Iron and Steel Products (ASTM A 123-89a) and Standard Specification for Carbon Steel Bolts and Studs, 60,000 psi Tensile Strength (ASTM A 307-89).
