Now fully updated, here's today's only complete single-source guide to designing, specifying, and building in masonry! Reflecting vital changes in the Uniform Building Code, the MSJC Code, and ASTM standards, as well as the latest insight into evolving materials, systems, and technology, the Fourth Edition of Masonry Design and Detailing is written for practicing professionals who are seeking a current, hands-on guide to quality masonry that is neither an esoteric structural engineering manual nor an overly simplistic do-it-yourself book. Every important aspect of masonry is illuminated in practical terms, including all types of wall systems, unit and mortar selection, component detailing, material specs, quality control testing, building code compliance, aesthetic variables, and installation requirements. The Fourth Edition offers new information on: the ``how'' and ``why'' of wall cracking and moisture penetration--and how to avoid these problems; mortar and grout mixtures and their uses; new flashing materials, new seismic anchors, interlocking CMU retaining wall systems, innovative flashing blocks, and new accessories; environmental topics such as recycling and sustainability; ASTM standards and tests, construction submittals, and specs for historic restoration; Uniform Building Code and MSJC Masonry Code requirements. Enhanced by more than 400 illustrations, the Fourth Edition gives architects, engineers, specifiers, and masonry contractors the principles and practical know-how they need to ensure quality, performance, and durability in masonry construction.About the Author:
