PDF Free Download | Masonry Design and Detailing For Architects and Contractors Fifth Edition by Christine Beall.
One of the primary changes to this edition is the introduction of the International Building Code and its requirements for masony in lieu of the Uniform, Standard, and National codes.
The Masonry Standards Joint Committee (MSJC) Building Code and Specification (ACI 530/ASCE 5/TMS 402) is still the primary code reference and, in fact, it is the primary reference for the new IBC as well.
The 2000 edition of the IBC was based on the 1999 MSJC Code and the 2003 IBC is based on the 2002 MSJC Code. Code requirements have been expanded to include veneers, glass unit masonry, and prestressed masonry.
I have also added dozens of new details and photographs to help illustrate the recommendations made in the text. As always, the subject of moisture penetration resistance has been expanded, with new details for window flashing, parapet intersections, drainage accessories, and other items of recurring interest.
A discussion of the basic principles of water penetration resistance has also been added to help shed light on the options available to architects and contractors today.
This edition has been updated to reflect revisions in the 1994 edition of the Uniform Building Code and the 1995 edition of the Masonry Standards Joint Committee (MSJC) Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (ACI 530/ASCE 5/TMS 402) and Specifications for Masonry Structures (ACI 530.1/ASCE 6/TMS 602).
The text has also been revised to include new ASTM standards and to change references to revised standards.
The information on mortar selection has been expanded to better explain selection criteria and methods of specifying, and a new chapter has been added on quality assurance and quality control.
The QA/QC chapter is intended to guide readers through the intricacies of specifying a quality assurance program for masonry, choosing the proper industry standards and ASTM quality control tests, and identifying appropriate levels of field observation or structural inspection.
Information has also been added on new masonry products such as segmental retaining walls, EPDM and rubberized asphalt flashings, â€œmortar cement,â€ and seismic veneer anchors.
There are several major changes in this edition. First of all, the text has been expanded significantly to cover new topics and discuss existing ones in greater detail.
Along with this new text, many new drawings, tables and photographs have been added. New coverage includes discussion of the Masonry Standards Joint Committee, Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (ACI 530/ASCE 5/TMS 402) and its accompanying Specifications.
Revisions have also been made to update code requirements for the 1991 Uniform Building Code, 1990 National Building Code, and 1991 Standard Building Code.
Much of the detailed information that has been added first appeared in articles which I have written for the Magazine of Masonry Construction, The Construction Specifier, Architecture, and Architectural Record.
The text has also been reorganized to consolidate topics on structural design and to create separate chapters on Movement and Moisture Control, Paving and Fireplaces, and Cleaning and Restoration. This new arrangement should make information easier to find.
This handbook addresses a broad range of aesthetic, technical, and environmental considerations. In addition to the engineering aspects of design, technical information on energy and sound control, maintenance, life-cycle costing, and workmanship is included. My goal has been to assemble and
correlate existing industry information into a single, concise, and complete reference aimed at architects and other design professionals.
Two major sources of information have been publications of the Brick Institute of America and the National Concrete Association, especially the BIA Technical Notes series and the NCMATEK Bulletins
A bibliography of detailed sources is given at the back of this book as well as a list of national and regional masonry organizations through which design assistance can be obtained.
I would like to thank Excy Johnston, AIA, for preparing the sketches in Figs. 1-1 and 2-1; Gregg Borchelt, P.E., of the Masonry
Institute of Houston/Galveston for his technical editing of Chapters 10, 11, and 12 and for the preparation of sample problems to accompany the text; Bernie Beall for typing the rough draft; and Kathy Cogburn for putting the text on computer disk.
Photographs and many technical illustrations, charts, graphs, and tables have been provided through the courtesy of the Brick Institute of America,
The National Concrete Masonry Association, the American Concrete Institute, the Masonry Institute of America, and the Portland Cement Association.
