Abstract:Large amounts of data have been collected on the response of high-rise buildings and test structures to ground motion generated by UNEs. These, couple with the response behavior of high-rise buildings to San Fernando's earthquake of 1971, provided unique opportunities to evaluate the behavior of reinforced concrete buildings responding to lateral motion. Some of the findings follow.
