Masonry Veneer Requirement Changes in TMS 402/602-22, A Whole New Chapter
November 9, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
TMS 402/602-22 Night School – Session #4
The chapter on masonry veneer has been extensively revised and updated for the 2022 edition of TMS 402/602. Prescriptive requirements for both anchored and adhered veneer have been simplified with many of the major requirements now found in a one or two tables. A tributary area method was added for engineered design of anchored veneer as well as guidance for modeling anchored veneer in a full engineered design. Both the prescriptive and engineered provisions for adhered veneer were enhanced. Learn how to design masonry veneer with the new provisions and determine where your specifications need to be upgraded to meet the new requirements. Also learn about updated installation and inspection requirements and allowable tolerances for both types of veneer in construction. The updated requirements will simplify the design of your masonry veneer projects and assure the most efficient design methods are being used.
- Learn about the updated prescriptive requirements for anchored veneer including appropriate wind loading and deflection of backing requirements as well as requirements for veneer ties and their spacing.
- Review new rational design methods for anchored veneer using the Engineered Design Methods: Tributary Area Method and Engineering Analysis Method.
- Learn about the updated prescriptive requirements for adhered veneer including unit limitations, mortar material requirements and required system components.
- Discuss needed updates to project specifications with information from TMS 602 for both anchored and adhered veneer including material and installation requirements.
