This Specification for Masonry Structures (ACI 6-02/TMS Keywords: anchors; clay brick; clay tile; concrete block; concrete brick;. 602-02) is written as a master Specification and is required by the Code to construction; construction materials; curing; grout; grouting; inspection.
5 Control materials, labor, and construction. Thus, this Specification covers joints; Masonry ; materials handling; mortars (material and placement);. minimum construction requirements for Masonry in Structures . Included quality assurance and quality control; reinforcing steel; specifications; ties;. are quality assurance requirements for materials; the placing, bonding, tests; tolerances. and anchoring of Masonry ; and the placement of grout and of 1. reinforcement. This Specification is meant to be modified and referenced Regular members fully participate in Committee activities, including responding to in the Project Manual. correspondence and voting.
