Masonry Stabilization

Masonry Stabilization

Masonry Stabilization

An article was written in the New York Time this past Sunday about "Designing Buildings to Resist Earthquakes" that points out the vulnerability of some 977 unreinforced masonry structures 58% of the buildings (wood, unreinforced masonry,reinforced concrete, and Steel) considered vulnerable in New York City.
How does a supplier reach the general structural engineering community with a system that has been used successfully in the "Historic" community for strengthening and stabilization for almost 30 years and is currently also being used for bridge strengthening, and blast protection as well?

RE: Masonry Stabilization

The most effective means of selling your product to the engineer is: personal contact.

I am a C. E. in Los Angeles, and I have seen plenty of presentations from product manufacturers, most of which have to do with seismic issues (since this city was "built on rock and roll"). And they allow us engineers to ask intelligent questions - sometimes sending them back to the showers so to speak - trying to come up with viable solutions to real time situations. I will specify a product for two reasons: 1.) familiarity with the product, and 2.) I am convinced the product does what the manufacturer claims it does.

So, get out there and make presentations of your product. It will be a learning curve for both the specifier and the manufacturer/ supplier.
