Subject: masonry vertical control joints


Does ACI publish any design or specification guides for vertical control joints in masonry?

I paid over $500 for the 2005 ACI Manual of Concrete Practice with over 2000 pages of standards and can’t find anything on vertical control joints.

Thanks in advance.
