Masonry shear walls - Response Modification factor

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In BOCA-99, table 1610.3.3, they have listed under "Loadbearing wall system" Reinforced masonry shear walls.  But under table 9.5.2.2 of ASCE-7-98 the have listed Special/Intermediate/Ordinary reinforce masonry shear walls.
 
Can anyone please explain, or tell me where to find the definitions for, Special/Intermediate/Ordinary reinforced masonry shear walls?
