Masonry Bond beams at 4'-0" o.c.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] I was reading the masonry section in Simplified Engineering by Parker Ambrose. It states that load bearing walls must be reinforced at 4'-0" o.c. both vertically and horizontally but doesn't site the code this is referenced from. I've looked through ACI 530 and still can't find anything about reinforcing in both directions. Can someone please tell me where this is in a code book.

Thank you
