RE: Seismic text

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Reinforced Masonry Engineering Handbook by James Amrhein should satisfy you.
It's published by the Masonry Institute of America.
Also, you might try contacting Hugh Brooks SE - HBA Publishing . Hugh has
written a couple of good manuals for cantilevered and retaining walls (as
well as his Tilt-up text which he is best known for). You can reach Hugh at
hbap(--nospam--at)  Hugh also markets Retain Pro which comes with a very good
text describing retaining walls and restrained walls. This also includes
information on tapered stem walls.
Hope this helps.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a book on seismic design that has
lots of examples on how to apply loads and includes smaller structures like
cantilevered walls, retaining walls, metal and CMU buildings, etc?
