The Uniform Building Code is one of the most widely adopted model building codes in the world and is a proven document meeting the needs of government units charged with enforcement of building regulation. The most recent edition, published in 1997, provides complete regulations covering all major aspects of building design and construction relating to fire and life safety and structural safety. The provisions of the 1997 Uniform Building Code were published in three volumes to help building inspectors, plans examiners, architects and structural designers locate provisions applicable to their respective fields without the need to search through all provisions. The two most popular volumes, 1 and 2, are now available from Delmar Learning. Volume 1 contains the administrative, fire- and life-safety, and field inspection provisions, including all nonstructural provisions and those structural provisions necessary for field inspections.

The Uniform Building Code (UBC), updated every three years, is the most widely used model building code in the United States. This book is a guide to understanding and implementing the new 1997 UBC, with particular emphasis to changes that have been adopted since the 1994 UBC guidelines.
Engineers need to be able to test the flammability of the materials they use in buildings and other structures. However, the range of test procedures and regulations in this important area is often confusing. Flammability testing of materials used in construction, transport and mining provides an authoritative guide to current best practice in ensuring safe design. The book begins by defining flammability and the main types of test available. Building on this foundation, a group of chapters then reviews tests for key materials used in buildings and their contents. There are chapters on wood, external cladding and sandwich panels as well as the flammability of walls and ceilings. Tests for furniture fabrics, cables and electrical appliances are also reviewed. A final group of chapters discusses other types of test, particularly in the transport sector, including chapters on flammability testing for railway passenger cars, aircraft, road and rail tunnels. With its distinguished international team of contributors, Flammability testing of materials used in construction, transport and mining is a standard reference for civil and transport engineers in particular. An authoritative guide to best practice in ensuring safe design Defines flammability and the main types of test available A vital reference source for civil and transport engineers
Make compliance with the Uniform Building Code a cinch with this complete set of project-oriented checklists. They decode the often arcane and unwieldly requirements of the UBC and reduce verification of code compliance to the simple act of running through a checklist. No matter what stage your project is in or what type of structure you're working on, this resource provides the needed time-saving, code-verifying tool. Divided into four major sections, this book/CD package gives you checklists for the design stage, architectural documentation, structural documentation, and specifications. Provided in both print and computer-ready format, these checklists simplify record-keeping as well as compliance. This valuable tool reduces the need for time-wasting design changes, expensive construction change orders, and worseÑclaims that can result from failure to design and build according to code. Concise and easy to read and to use, the Uniform Building Code Manual is your key to quick and complete verification.
The Masonry Institute of America believes that the best way to extend and improve the use of masonry is through education and dissemination of information. Following a long tradition of such ideals, the 1997 Masonry Codes and Specifications is a ready reference that furnishes, in one document, the various code requirements for masonry from the Uniform Building Code and Standards, the California State Building Code, and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standards that govern the specification of quality and testing of materials. The book includes Guide Specifications for masonry construction set forth in the CSI format with notes to the specifier.
