URM in seismic zones after 1933

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It is usually said that the use of URM was not permitted after the 1933
Long Beach earthquake.  Other than references to the Field Act for
schools,  I have not been able to find the particular code (UBC) section
that outlaws URM for commercial buildings.  Can some one provide the
reference?
