Keeping current with structural requirements in the building codes can be a time consuming task for design professionals. This seminar will familiarize attendees with the development process of the MSJC (Building Code Requirements & Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 402/ACI 530/ASCE 5 and MS 602/ACI 530.1/ ASCE 6) while highlighting major changes that were incorporated into the 2008 MSJC & 2011 MSJC editions. A sneak peak at the 2013 MSJC priorities will also be covered.
Presented by: Diane B. Throop, P.E., FASTM, FTMS - Director of Engineering - International Masonry Institute
Program Description: Ten Things Engineers Need to Know About Masonry Specifications
This presentation focuses on ten items of masonry specifications that are often not well understood. Subjects discussed range from recent changes in ASTM standards and how they affect calculated strength, to mortar types and selection, to mortar testing, to determining masonry (assembly) compressive strength, to reinforcement, including lap splices. This session is based on the requirements of MSJC (TMS 402/ACI 530/ASCE 5 and TMS 602/ACI 530.1/ASCE6) and includes the over-riding provisions of the International Building Code.
