Re: masonry infill walls as lateral bracing in a low rise steel frame building

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
until you get your FEMA books, the concept is to run the reinforced
masonry walls all around (just outside the columns and beams) and anchor
with conventional anchor bolts. Or if the architectural concept is to
have exposed columns and beams on the exterior,  run the masonry just
inside. It will not work well to run the walls within the columns/beams.
