Abstract:
The purpose and scope of this special publication, which is concerned primarily with departures from and improvement upon code-based seismic design practice, are outlined. The broad underlying principles of wind and seismic design by current codes are discussed. Certain major deficiencies of current practice are pointed out. Comparative features of elastic and inelastic seismic structural response are outlined.
