Abstract: Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures, Specifications for Masonry Structures, Commentary on Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures, and Commentary on Specifications for Masonry Structures is a joint effort of ACI, ASCE, and TMS. The Code covers the design and construction of masonry structures. Among the subjects covered are: permits and drawings; quality assurance; materials; placing embedded items; analysis and design; strength and serviceability; flexural and axial loads; shear; details and development of reinforcement; walls; columns; pilasters; beams and lintels; and an empirical design method applicable to buildings meeting specific location and construction criteria. The Specifications covers minimum construction requirements for masonry structures. Included are requirements for materials; the placing, bonding and anchoring of masonry; the placement of grout and of reinforcement. The Code and Specifications are written as legal documents so that they may be adopted by reference in a general building code. Therefore, they cannot contain background details or suggestions for carrying out their requirements or intents. The Commentaries to the Code and Specifications serve this function.
