In an effort to assist in the development of engineering procedures for the seismic evaluation and rehabilitation of unreinforced masonry buildings, designed, if at all, for gravity loads only, this workshop volume compares the Italian and American experience in these areas. The intent of the workshop was to review hazard mitigation for URM buildings as a whole. Thus, workshop topics included architectural issues in building preservation and rehabilitation, development of Eurocode 8 and FEMA-BSSC-ATC-33, case studies of retrofitting projects and in situ testing methods for masonry construction. The workshop program called for introduction of each general topic, followed by the presentation of a paper on that topic from one Italian and one American participant.
