The TMS 402/602-16 (formerly designated as TMS 402/ACI 530/ASCE 5 and TMS 602/ASCE 530.1/ASCE 6) has been released and adopted by the 2018 edition of the International Building Code and International Residential Code for the design and construction of structural masonry, masonry veneer, and glass unit masonry. This lesson provides updates for the major updates and changes to the 2016 TMS 402/602, with a short review on changes that will be made in the 2018 International Building Code’s masonry provisions. The 1.5 hour video is presented by Dr. Richard M. Bennett, Chair of the Committee that developed these provisions. This lesson is intended for designers, contractors, and others to help them understand the main updates made to these codes and standards from the earlier TMS 402/602-13 and the 2015 IBC. It is assumed that the user has familiarity with those earlier documents.
