Abstract:

This report provides guidance for engineers to use in strengthening buildings found to be deficient in seismic resistance. The guidance is intended to serve as the basis for criteria for determining the suitability of specific strengthening schemes for a building and applying specific strengthening methods. Various strengthening methods which have been used in the past are reviewed, with emphasis given to those most applicable to Army needs. Detailed guidelines for the application of two methods-pneumatic application of concrete and use of epoxy compounds-are provided, along with advantages and disadvantages of each. Author
