Abstract:
One of the functions of the Canada Emergency Measures Organization is to reduce the vulunerability of normal buildings to a variety of dynamic loads, including blast and earthquake. The first part of this paper describes the production of eight small structures each with seven floors and 15 columns per floor. . .The paper also includes a discussion of the techniques used in mounting the model on a fixed base and on attaching loading devices.
