In a post of 18 April 1997, Barry Welliver inquires about a wrap for URM. In a paper published in Volume III of EERI's Third U. S. National Conference on Earthquake Engineering (1986), "Relative Benefits of Alternative Strengthening Methods for Low Strength Masonry Buildings," by Charles Scawthorn and Ann Bedker, illustrates a test of where welded wire mesh (2" X 4" spacing) was stapled to mud adobe walls and *apparently* held them together rather well. In lieu of WWF, I have thought that a method of "reinforcing" URM buildings could be accomplished by thru bolting expanded metal to both sides of walls, which then could be covered with stucco or gunnite on the outside, and *whatever* on the inside. I have never used this, and to the best of my knowledge it has never been tested, but it seems that this might be a reasonable alternative to cutting URM and installing reinforcing and then gunniting it.
