A companion volume to Seismic Stabilization of Historic Adobe Structures: Final Report of the Getty Seismic Adobe Project, this book offers guidance for planners, architects, and engineers in the retrofitting of historic and culturally significant adobe structures. The text outlines the fundamental conservation principles and preparatory steps in the design of a plan. Additionally, it describes the types of earthquake damage typically encountered in historic adobe buildings and presents detailed technical procedures for applying the appropriate retrofit measures. The book also includes a directory of pertinent government agencies, possible funding sources, an abstract of the California seismic safety code, an article describing historic adobe, and excerpts from the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
