[30] studied behavior of 1.7 m x 3.5 m masonry infill wall on scaled model of 1: 1.5, subjected to out-of-plane loading using newly developed technique of confined underwater blast wave generators (WBWG) with experimental set-up shown in Figure 5.
We are acutely aware that Townsend's Big-eared Bats are sensitive to human disturbance (BC Wildlife 1998; WBWG 2005), and waking from torpor in midwinter is metabolically expensive (Thomas and others 1990), so we developed rapid-reconnaissance survey methods (Kunz 2003; Turtle 2003) to minimize disturbance as much as possible.
In the Western US, Townsend's Big-eared Bat aggregations in hibemacula commonly number only several hundred individuals (WBWG 2005); we are not estimating Brazilian Free-tailed Bat (Tadarida brasiliensis) colony size, which may number in the millions (McCracken 2003).
