BUILDING CODE REQUIREMENTS FOR MASONRY STRUCTURES, SPECIFICATION FOR MASONRY STRUCTURES, COMMENTARY ON BUILDING CODE REQUIREMENTS FOR MASONRY STRUCTURES, COMMENTARY ON SPECIFICATION FOR MASONRY STRUCTURES

Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (ACI 530-95/ASCE 5-95/TMS 402-95), Specification for Masonry Structures (ACI 530.1-95/ASCE 6-95/TMS 602-95), Commentary on Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (same numbers as its associated Code), and Commentary on Specification for Masonry Structures (same numbers as its associated Specification) are joint efforts of the American Concrete Institute, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and The Masonry Society. The Code covers the design and construction of masonry structures while the Specification is concerned with the quality, inspection, testing and placement of materials used in construction. Some of the topics covered in the Code are: definitions, analysis and design, strength, axial loads, shear, beams and seismic design. On the other hand, the Specification discusses subjects such as quality assurance, requirements for materials, the placing, bonding and anchoring of masonry, and the placement of grout and reinforcements. 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.
