[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Try ATC-31, it might give you an idea about the connection design for the lateral load path.

ATC-31: The report, Evaluation of the Performance of Seismically Retrofitted Buildings, was developed
under a contract from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST, formerly NBS) and funded by
the U. S. Geological Survey. Available through the ATC office. (Published 1992, 75 pages)

     Abstract: This report summarizes the results from an investigation of the effectiveness of 229
     seismically retrofitted buildings, primarily unreinforced masonry and concrete tilt-up buildings. All
     buildings were located in the areas affected by the 1987 Whittier Narrows, California, and 1989
     Loma Prieta, California, earthquakes.
