Abstract:
The prerequisite of any problem of engineering design is a knowledge of loads and forces involved, and to this rule the problem of rendering buildings and other structures earthquake proof is no exception. Before any beginning can be made on the problem something must be known of the earthquake itself, what it is, and what is to be expected at times of earthquake occurrence.
