Min. masonry reinf

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a 12-inch thick concrete masonry wall to be reinforced per UBC's 
minimum reinforcing requirements for Seismic Zone 3 (i.e., total vert +
horiz 
reinf greater than 0.002 times gross area of wall).  Any recommendations on 
the most economical arrangement of vertical reinforced cells and horizontal 
bond beams (and/or horizontal joint reinforcement) to satisfy the code?
