The U.S. Coordinated Program for Masonry Building Research is a time-phased set of specific research tasks addressing materials, component and system behavior. The objective of the program is to develop a limit state design methodology for reinforced masonry buildings based upon research results and to provide the associated analytical models and materials/assemblege tests. The research is being conducted by the Technical Coordinating Committee for Masonry Research, commonly known as TCCMAR, which consists of 21 researchers from academic and private organizations. Work began in the fall of 1985 and is expected to conclude by January 1993.
