Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures contains four parts: Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (TMS 402-08/ACI 530-08/ASCE 5-08); Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 602-08/ACI 530.1-08/ASCE 6-08); Commentary on Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (TMS 402-08/ACI 530-08/ASCE 5-08); and Commentary on Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 602-08/ACI 530.1-08/ASCE 6-08). These standards are produced through the joint efforts of The Masonry Society (TMS), the American Concrete Institute (ACI), and the Structural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers (SEI/ASCE) through the Masonry Standards Joint Committee (MSJC). The Code covers the design and construction of masonry structures while the Specification is concerned with minimum construction requirements for masonry in structures. Some of the topics covered in the Code 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; veneers; and autoclaved aerated concrete masonry. An empirical design method and a prescriptive method applicable to buildings meeting specific location and construction criteria are also included. The Specification covers subjects such as 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. Since the Code is written as a legal document and the Specification as a master specification required by the Code, the two commentaries present background details, committee considerations, and research data used to develop the Code and Specification. The designation of these standards has been modified from past editions to recognize the lead sponsorship role by The Masonry Society. 530-08: 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 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 TMS 602-08/ACI 530.1-08/ASCE 6-08 Specification for Masonry Structures and other standards. 530-08 Commentary: This Code covers the design and construction of masonry structures.
