TMS 402/602-22 Night School

The New TMS 402/602-22: Review of the New Standards and Changes Made

During this five-part Night School webinar series, masonry experts and Committee leaders will review the new standards TMS 402-22 Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures and TMS 602 Specification for Masonry Structures and changes made since the 2016 edition. These standards will form the basis for masonry design provisions in the 2024 International Building Code and other model building codes and include some major new provisions that include a new appendix on masonry partition walls reinforced with Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) reinforcement, completely revised anchored and adhered veneer provisions, and enhancements throughout the standards.

These five sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm ET from October 19, 2022 to November 16, 2022. Each session provides one hour of continuing education. Register for the entire series to receive an additional discount.

Attendees are encouraged to have a copy of the new TMS 402/602-22, which can be ordered at discount when registering for these webinars.

Overview of Changes in TMS 402/602-22 and Review of the Specification for Masonry Structures
October 19, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - This webinar will review the major changes from the 2016 edition to the 2022 edition of TMS 402/602. The 2022 edition was created using the first six-year revision cycle, allowing more comprehensive consideration of significant changes and reorganization of these Masonry Standards.

Major Structural Design Changes in TMS 402/602-22
October 26, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - This webinar will provide an overview of the major structural changes in TMS 402-22, including the introduction of compression-controlled sections in strength design. As a result of this, the maximum reinforcement provisions were deleted except for beams and intermediate and special shear walls under in-plane loads. The basis for the provisions, the impact on design, and some design aids will be presented. Read the full session description here →
Seismic/Limit States Design per TMS 402/602-22
November 2, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - This session of the TMS 402/602-22 Night School will review the changes to the provisions in Chapter 7 and Appendix C that effect the seismic design of masonry structures. This will include revisions to the requirements for special reinforced masonry shear walls, changes to the requirements based on the assigned Seismic Design Category, and changes made to the treatment of seismic displacements in the masonry code, including a new deformation compatibility provision. Read full session description here →
Masonry Veneer Requirement Changes in TMS 402/602-22, A Whole New Chapter
November 9, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - The chapter on masonry veneer has been extensively revised and updated for the 2022 edition of TMS 402/602. Learn how to design masonry veneer with the new provisions and determine where your specifications need to be upgraded to meet the new requirements. The updated requirements will simplify the design of your masonry veneer projects and assure the most efficient design methods are being used. Read full session description here →
Using the New Appendix D on Composite Reinforcement in Masonry
November 10, 2022 @ 7 pm ET - Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) reinforcement in concrete was first introduced over 25 years ago but prior to TMS 402/602-22, no companion guidelines existed for masonry construction. The new Appendix D of TMS 402/602 is a first standard in the U.S. for the use of GFRP reinforcement in masonry. Learn how to use the new Appendix D to design and specify GFRP reinforced masonry for your next project. Read full session description here →
