2008 MSJC Book Version
The Masonry Standards Joint Committee’s (MSJC) 2008 Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 402/ACI 530/ASCE 5 and TMS 602/ACI 530.1/ASCE 6) and Commentaries will be available from TMS at the end of February, 2008. The newest edition of the national masonry design code and minimum specification are expected in late February and includes numerous changes and enhancements including provisions on self consolidating grout, reformatted and clearer seismic design requirements, revised anchor bolt capacity equations, and defined inspection frequencies of key aspects of masonry construction. The new edition features “bleed tabs”, revision bars, deletion arrows and movement boxes so that users of the 2005 MJSC will be able to quickly identify sections that have been substantively modified.
