About This Item

 

Full Description

The Masonry Standards Joint Committee's (MSJC) 2008 Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 402/ACI 530/ASCE 5 and TMS 602/ACI 530.1/ASCE 6) and Commentaries book is now available.

The new edition of the national masonry design code and minimum specifications include numerous changes and enhancements including provisions on self consolidating grout, reformatted and clearer seismic design requirements, revised anchor bolt capacity equations, and defined inspection frequencies of key aspects of masonry construction. The new edition features "bleed tabs", revision bars, deletion arrows and movement boxes so that users of the 2005 MJSC will be able to quickly identify sections that have been substantively modified.

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.
