Re: Seismic design of shear wall

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Richard,

Due to the changes in codes, old publications are no longer reliable.

I recommend the publication "1997 Design of Reinforced Masonry Structures"
by Brandow and Hart.

Published by CMACN .

916 -722-1819

www.cmacn.org

If you are a California or Nevada P.E., then the publication is free.
