URM lateral loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
When reinforcing a URM wall with new shotcrete to take all the the lateral
loads, should the latearl force be per sectino A110.0 of 1997 UCBC or should
it be per the 1997 CBC.  Basically the URM walls are all going to have new
shotcrete walls.  The URM walls will not be used to resist any lateral
loads.

Thanks in advance
