The Masonry Institute of America believes that the best way to extend and improve the use of masonry is through education and dissemination of information. Following a long tradition of such ideals, the 1997 Masonry Codes and Specifications is a ready reference that furnishes, in one document, the various code requirements for masonry from the Uniform Building Code and Standards, the California State Building Code, and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standards that govern the specification of quality and testing of materials. The book includes Guide Specifications for masonry construction set forth in the CSI format with notes to the specifier.

Thoroughly revised and updated, the third edition of this popular textbook continues to provide a comprehensive coverage of the main construction materials for undergraduate students of civil engineering and construction related courses. It creates an understanding of materials and how they perform through a knowledge of their chemical and physical structure, leading to an ability to judge their behaviour in service and construction. Materials covered include; metals and alloys, concrete, bituminous materials, brickwork and blockwork, polymers and fibre composites. Each material is discussed in terms of: structure; strength and failure; durability; deformation; practice and processing. The sections on concrete, polymers and fibre composites have been significantly revised. Descriptions of important properties are related back to the structure and forward to basic practical considerations. With its wealth of illustrations and reader-friendly style and layout Construction Materials.

Internationally, code officials recognize the need for a modern, up-to-date building code addressing the design and installation of building systems through requirements emphasizing performance. The 2009 International Building Code® (IBC®) is designed to meet those needs through model code regulations that safeguard the public health and safety in all communities, large and small. This comprehensive code establishes minimum regulations for building systems using prescriptive and performance-based provisions. It is founded on broad-based principles that make possible the use of alternate materials as well as new, improved design methodologies. The changes in the structural provisions of the 2009 IBC when compared to previous editions of the IBC and legacy codes (Uniform Building Code, National Building Code, Standard Building Code) create the need for a comprehensive work that discusses the changes and expands on many of the new or improved provisions. This book, the 2009 IBC Handbook—Structural Provisions, is intended to do just that. By helping code users understand and properly apply the structural provisions in Chapters 16 through 23 of the 2009 IBC, this handbook is a valuable resource for those who design, plan review, inspect or construct buildings or other structures regulated by the 2009 IBC. Although it will prove useful to a broad range of individuals, it was written primarily so that architects, engineers and code officials can understand the IBC’s provisions and gain insight into their underlying basis and intent. To that end, the handbook’s numerous figures, tables and examples help clarify and illustrate the proper application of many code provisions. One of the significant differences between the structural provisions in the UBC and the IBC is that the IBC adopts national (structural) standards by reference rather than transcribing the structural provisions of the standards into the code itself. This is true for structural loads as well as structural materials. This trend has continued with each subsequent edition of the IBC to the extent that the 2009 IBC relies on the referenced standards even more than the previous editions. Therefore, in many cases the discussion in this handbook pertains to the provisions in the referenced standard rather than the IBC itself. The 2009 IBC Handbook—Structural Provisions covers four major structural categories: 􀀍 Structural load effects and design provisions of Chapter 16 􀀍 Special inspection, structural testing and structural observation provisions of Chapter 17 􀀍 Foundation and soil provisions of Chapter 18 􀀍 Specific structural material provisions for concrete, masonry, steel and wood in Chapters 19 through 23 As an added benefit to readers, ICC has included a CD-ROM containing the complete structural handbook as well as a variety of helpful resource documents such as 2003 NEHRP Recommended Provisions for Seismic Regulations for New Buildings and Other Structures with Accompanying Commentary (FEMA 450, Parts 1 and 2), NEHRP Recommended Provisions: Design Examples (FEMA 451), NEHRP Recommended Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures: Training and Instructional Materials (FEMA 451B), Seismic Considerations for Steel Storage Racks Located in Areas Accessible to the Public (FEMA 460), Homebuilders’ Guide to Earthquake-Resistant 􀀶􀁗􀁕􀁘􀁆􀁗􀁘􀁕􀁄􀁏 􀀳􀁕􀁒􀁙􀁌􀁖􀁌􀁒􀁑􀁖 􀁌􀁌􀁌 Preface Design and Construction (FEMA 232), Communicating with Owners and Managers of New Buildings on Earthquake Risk: A Primer for Design Professionals (FEMA 389), Designing for Earthquakes: A Manual for Architects (FEMA 454) and CodeMaster—2006 IBC Seismic Design—2006 IBC, 2003 NEHRP, ASCE 7-05. 􀁌􀁙 􀀕􀀓􀀓􀀜 􀀬􀀥􀀦 􀀫􀁄􀁑􀁇􀁅􀁒􀁒􀁎 About the International Code Council The International Code Council® (ICC®) is a nonprofit membership association dedicated to protecting the health, safety, and welfare of people by creating better buildings and safer communities.

Make compliance with the Uniform Building Code a cinch with this complete set of project-oriented checklists. They decode the often arcane and unwieldly requirements of the UBC and reduce verification of code compliance to the simple act of running through a checklist. No matter what stage your project is in or what type of structure you're working on, this resource provides the needed time-saving, code-verifying tool. Divided into four major sections, this book/CD package gives you checklists for the design stage, architectural documentation, structural documentation, and specifications. Provided in both print and computer-ready format, these checklists simplify record-keeping as well as compliance. This valuable tool reduces the need for time-wasting design changes, expensive construction change orders, and worseÑclaims that can result from failure to design and build according to code. Concise and easy to read and to use, the Uniform Building Code Manual is your key to quick and complete verification.
