The 9th Edition of the Masonry Designers’ Guide, designated as the MDG-2016 so that readers know it is based on the 2016 TMS 402 and TMS 602 has been completely updated. Numerous additions and changes have been made, including a new Chapter on Reinforcement and Connectors, discussion and examples on new TMS 402-16 provisions, information related to masonry design requirements in the 2018 International Building Code (IBC), and updates related to new loading requirements in ASCE 7-16.

The MDG-2016 is an excellent resource for designers as well as students learning about masonry because it:

• was developed by dozens of masonry experts who are familiar both with masonry design and with the Code requirements governing masonry’s use

• includes over 110 practical examples of typical masonry buildings and components

• provides practical tips on how to quickly and efficiently design typical masonry

• includes drawings and photographs to illustrate concepts and procedures discussed

Topics covered in the 21 chapters of the MDG-2016 include masonry materials, testing, quality assurance, quality control, construction methods, structural design, seismic design, and using the TMS 402/602 with model Building Codes.
