ABSTRACT

Unreinforced Masonry Buildings and Earthquakes: Developing Successful Risk Reduction Programs   [open pdf - 5MB]

"This document provides guidance on how to develop programs to reduce the earthquake risks of existing unreinforced masonry buildings. As the following chapters will show, this building type is typically the most seismically vulnerable category of construction in a community, and it is by far the most common type of building to be singled out for voluntary or mandatory seismic risk reduction programs in the United States."
