A way of using the instrumental records obtained from past quakes to evaluate the earthquake resistant qualities of proposed or existing structures is devel-oped. The effect of damping may be included and a method of using a torsion pendulum to obtain certain important results is described. The condition under which an earthquake allowance in the form of a transverse load proportional to the weight may be safely used is identified.
