ABSTRACT

Short-Period Building Collapse Performance and Recommendations for Improving Seismic Design: Volume 3 -- Study of One-To-Four Story Special Reinforced Masonry Shear Wall Buildings   [open pdf - 36MB]

From the Introduction: "This report describes the approach, analyses, findings, conclusions, and recommendations for one in a series of studies on the gap between analytically predicted and historically observed earthquake-induced collapse rates of short-period buildings. It presents work focused on special reinforced masonry shear wall buildings (herein referred to as 'reinforced masonry' systems). The Applied Technology Council (ATC) was commissioned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to conduct these studies as part of the ATC-116 Project series, 'Solutions to the Issue of Short Period Building Performance.'"
