Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (ACI 530-99/ASCE 5-99/TMS 402-99), Specifications for Masonry Structures (ACI 530.1-99/ASCE 6-99/TMS 602-99), Commentary on Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (ACI 530-99/ASCE 5-99/TMS 402-99), and Commentary on Specifications for Masonry Structures (ACI 530.1-99/ASCE 6-99/TMS 602-99) is a joint effort of the American Concrete Institute, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the Masonry Society. The Code (530-99) covers the design and construction of masonry structures. It is written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a general 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; glass unit masonry; and veneers. An empirical design method and a prescriptive method to buildings meeting specific location and construction criteria, are also included. The specification for Masonry Structures (ACI 530.1-99) 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. *** Older editions of the 530 are available. Please contact ACI's member services for pricing.
