ACI 530/530.1 - Building Code Requirements & Specifications for Masonry Structures, 2005

This code covers the design and construction of masonry structures. It is written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a legally adopted building code.

Among the subjects covered are: 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. 220 pp.

Updates to the 2005 edition include:

  • Introduction of AAC (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) Masonry
  • Harmonization of allowable stress and strength design provisions for lap splices and development lengths
  • Revised maximum reinforcement limits for strength design
  • Added provisions for confined special boundary elements to strength design
  • Introduction of prescriptive requirements for anchored veneer

ACI 318-05 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary, 2005

This commentary discusses some of the considerations of Committee 318 in developing the provisions contained in “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-05),” hereinafter called the code or the 2005 code. Emphasis is given to the explanation of new or revised provisions that may be unfamiliar to code users. In addition, comments are included for some items contained in previous editions of the code to make the present commentary independent of the previous editions. Comments on specific provisions are made under the corresponding chapter and section numbers of the code.

The commentary is not intended to provide a complete historical background concerning the development of the ACI Building Code, * nor is it intended to provide a detailed résumé of the studies and research data reviewed by the committee in formulating the provisions of the code. However, references to some of the research data are provided for those who wish to study the background material in depth. As the name implies, “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete” is meant to be used as part of a legally adopted building code and as such must differ in form and substance from documents that provide detailed specifications, recommended practice, complete design procedures, or design aids.

The code is intended to cover all buildings of the usual types, both large and small. Requirements more stringent than the code provisions may be desirable for unusual construction. The code and commentary cannot replace sound engineering knowledge, experience, and judgement. A building code states only the minimum requirements necessary to provide for public health and safety. The code is based on this principle. For any structure, the owner or the structural designer may require the quality of materials and construction to be higher than the minimum requirements necessary to protect the public as stated in the code. However, lower standards are not permitted.

The commentary directs attention to other documents that provide suggestions for carrying out the requirements and intent of the code. However, those documents and the commentary are not a part of the code. The code has no legal status unless it is adopted by the government bodies having the police power to regulate building design and construction. Where the code has not been adopted, it may serve as a reference to good practice even though it has no legal status.

The code provides a means of establishing minimum standards for acceptance of designs and construction by legally appointed building officials or their designated representatives. The code and commentary are not intended for use in settling disputes between the owner, engineer, architect, contractor, or their agents, subcontractors, material suppliers, or testing agencies. Therefore, the code cannot define the contract responsibility of each of the parties in usual construction. General references requiring compliance with the code in the project specifications should be avoided since the contractor is rarely in a position to accept responsibility for design details or construction requirements that depend on a detailed knowledge of the design. Design-build construction contractors, however, typically combine the design and construction responsibility. Generally, the drawings, specifications and contract documents should contain all of the necessary requirements to ensure compliance with the code. In part, this can be accomplished by reference to specific code sections in the project specifications. Other ACI publications, such as “Specifications for Structural Concrete (ACI 301)” are written specifically for use as contract documents for construction.

It is recommended to have testing and certification programs for the individual parties involved with the execution of work performed in accordance with this code. Available for this purpose are the plant certification programs of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute, the Post-Tensioning Institute and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Associa-tion; the personnel certification programs of the American Concrete Institute and the Post-Tensioning Institute; and the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute's Voluntary Certification Program for Fusion-Bonded Epoxy Coating Applicator Plants. In addition, “Standard Specification for Agencies Engaged in the Testing and/or Inspection of Materials Used in Construction” (ASTM E 329-03) specifies performance requirements for inspection and testing agencies. 430 pp.
