The Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures will provide solutions to the most complex masonry construction questions. Replacing all existing masonry code, these important new ACI/ ASCE documents have been especially prepared to facilitate adoption, by reference, in a general building code. They have been adopted by B.O.C.A. and SBCC (model code groups). The code contains: a standard construction specification as part of the design standard; provisions for analytical and empirical design; provisions for seismic design; and provisions for design of brick and block composite and cavity walls. Other topics covered by the new code include: permits and drawings; quality assurance; materials; placing embedded items; strength and serviceability; flexural and axial loads; shear; walls; columns; pilasters; beams and lintels. The quality, inspection, testing and placement of materials used in construction are covered by reference to specifications and the appropriate ASTM Standards.
