Glass Block Walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Can anyone make any recommendations, or know of any documentation, regarding
the shear capacity of glass block walls? I am evaluating an existing
building with a wood diaphragm supported by a wood shear wall on one side
and a glass block wall on the other side. The glass bock wall has horizontal
wire reinforcement web at 24" o.c. and 5"X3" steel mullions vertical at
5'-4" o.c.
