(TMS 402-11/ACI 530-11/ASCE 5-11) : Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures and Related Commentaries
The 2011 edition of the Building Code Requirements and Specifications for Masonry Structures (MSJC) represents a major update from the 2008 edition, both in technical requirements and in layout. The MSJC is a compilation of two standards, the TMS 402-11/ACI 530-11/ASCE 5-11: Code Requirements for Masonry Structures and TMS 602-11/ACI 530.1-11/ASCE 6-11: Specification for Masonry Structures.
This edition will be referenced by the 2012 International Building Code for the design and construction of structural masonry, veneer and glass unit masonry. It has been updated to be consistent with the requirements in ASCE 7-10, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.
This new edition has been laid out in a Code/Commentary and Specification/Commentary side by side format so that users can quickly review the commentary related to the Code and Specification provisions.
- A recalibration of allowable stresses
- The addition of provisions for infill masonry
- A refinement of the quality assurance/special inspection provisions for masonry that includes references to relevant requirements for each inspection task.
