criteria for retrofit of existing structures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What criteria would you use to perform seismic retrofit on an existing
building in Southern California? Is UBC or California Title 24 (which is
based on UBC) a good set of criteria? The reason I am asking is if this
criteria is for design and construction of new buildings then it can not
apply to existing structure.

Thanks for your input.
