RE: Special inspection and masonry allowables

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

The way I read it, the 50% strength reduction is gone entirely and special inspection is required for all structural masonry.

What is the status of the special inspection/.5

masonry allowable reduction factor and the current

codes?  Apparently it has disappeared from IBC and

ACI530.  Doesn't that leave a hole in the standards if

a building isn't subject to special inspection?


Thanks in advance,

Jim Wilson
