The objective of NBC 202: Mandatory Rules Of Thumb Load Bearing Masonry is to achieve the appropriate earthquake-resistant design of those buildings in Nepal which are :

  • not normally engineered
  • constructed of fired brick or stone masonry in cement or mud mortars
  • not more than two storeys high if built in stone masonry in cement mortar or fired brick in mud masonry
  • not more than three storeys high if built of fired brick in a cement mortar.

This document includes suitable illustrations to explain the important points, sketches and sufficient data to proportion the critical strength elements correctly. The requirements are based on pre-engineered design calculations of typical structures meeting prescribed criteria.
