Book Description

The 2011 edition of Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures covers the design and construction of masonry structures. As a Standard, it is written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a legally adopted building code. Changes to this edition include a recalibration of allowable stresses, the addition of provisions for infill masonry, and a refinement of the quality assurance/special inspection provisions for masonry that includes references to relevant requirements for each inspection task. Topics include: 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, and veneers. An empirical design method applicable to buildings meeting specific location and construction criteria are also included. This Standard is an essential reference for structural engineers, contractors, and inspection officials working on masonry structures.

1This version of 2011 is actually 2008
By Mandy Anderson
I have the 2008 version of the code and it has served me well for my studies and career. Thus I have purchased this item twice to update my library to the 2011 version and twice I have received a copy of the 2008 code. They appear to have their numbers crossed.

4Better than previous version
By a.r
Compare with the previous version, this Code is better organized, and some portion is added, still I do not like the commentary part.
