This how-to guide and technical manual contains everything you need to know about plastering and stucco. This Fifth Edition, illustrated with numerous color photos, contains essential information on materials, bases, mixes, hand and machine applications, and curing. Includes a glossary of plastering terms, a tool list, a troubleshooting guide, and a guide specification. Featuring the latest ASTM and CSA standards, this is an excellent resource for architects, engineers, specifiers, inspectors, contractors, plasterers, and apprentices.

Price: $37.00
This publication provides a simplified approach to the design of concrete footings, foundation walls, and above-grade walls, both load bearing and non-load bearing, intended primarily for use in detached one- and two-family dwellings. This second edition of the standard is revised to coordinate with the criteria of the 2010 edition of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures and the 2011 edition of the American Concrete Institute Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete, a $70 value.
Item Code: EB562
Price: $0.00

This automated tool is a companion to Prescriptive Design of Exterior Concrete Walls for One- and Two-Family Dwellings (PCA 100-2012), the standard that provides a simplified approach to the design of concrete footings, foundation walls, and above-grade walls, both load bearing and non-load bearing, intended primarily for use in detached one- and two-family dwellings. Design is accomplished by answering a series of questions using dropdown menus. Users should also download a free copy of EB562 from the PCA Bookstore as a guide to working with the automated tool.

Item Code: EB562.01
Price: $0.00
The twelfth edition of this classic PCA resource has been updated to reflect code changes introduced in the latest version of Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete, ACI 318-11. These notes will help users apply code provisions related to the design and construction of concrete structures. Each chapter of the manual starts with a description of the latest code changes.

The goal of this award winning publication series is to assist the design engineer and architect in the state-of-the-art application of the latest American Concrete Institute structural concrete design standard.

The emphasis is placed on “how-to-use” the code incorporating discussions behind the code provisions and fully worked design solutions to real world problems.

The manual has been found to be also an invaluable aid to educators, contractors, materials and product manufacturers, building code authorities, inspectors, and others involved in the design, construction, and regulation of concrete structures.

The over 900 page publication adds to the understanding of the art and science of structural engineering through presentation of the latest research and design procedures.  By incorporating discussions of the history and philosophy of concrete design, the document strives to inform the reader of both the ‘letter of the law’ and, more importantly, the ‘spirit’ behind the code provisions.

Item Code: EB712
Price: $0.00

This document showcases analysis and design for rectangular tanks containing fluids. Describes the analysis procedure and provides vastly expanded design tables of coefficients for moments, shears, and deflections due to uniform and triangular loads.


Item Code: IS003
Price: $60.00
Presents analysis methods for circular tanks containing fluids. Tables of coefficients are provided for bending moments and ring tensions due to various loading conditions. Provisions are provided for wall thickness, reinforcement and crack controls based on ACI 318-89 Building Code Requirements for Reinforced Concrete and ACI 350-89 Environmental Engineering Concrete Structures. Also given are design guidelines for roof slabs and base slabs. Effect of variation in wall thickness and temperature variation in tank walls is also considered. A comprehensive design example illustrates the use of the design aids.
Item Code: IS072
Price: $45.00
Learn how to develop an effective quality assurance program for masonry mortar. Covers basic concepts of a quality assurance program and relates these to mortar materials, specifications, and tests. Explains the roles of submittals, testing, and inspection.
Item Code: IS279
Price: $0.00
This 2008 edition of the national masonry design code and minimum specification covers the design and construction of masonry structures and is accompanied by commentaries. Design methods include empirical design, prescriptive method, and strength design. It is written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a legally adopted building code. Among the subjects covered are: definitions, contract documents, quality assurance, materials, placement of embedded items, analysis and design, strength and serviceability, flexural and axial loads, shear, details and development of reinforcement, walls, columns, pilasters, beams and lintels, seismic design requirements, glass unit masonry, veneers, and autoclaved aerated concrete masonry. The quality, inspection, testing, and placement of materials used in construction are covered by reference to TMS 602/ACI 530.1/ASCE 6 specification and other standards.

Among the numerous changes and enhancements to this edition are provisions on self-consolidating grout, reformatted and clearer seismic design requirements, revised anchor bolt capacity equations, and defined inspection frequencies of key aspects of masonry construction. The new edition features “bleed tabs”, revision bars, deletion arrows, and movement boxes so that users of the 2005 MJSC will be able to quickly identify sections that have been substantively modified.

Jointly published by The Masonry Society, the American Concrete Institute, and the American Society of Civil Engineers. (TMS 402-08/ACI 530-08/ASCE 5-08 and TMS 602-08/ACI 530.1-08/ASCE 6-08) 2008.
