Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to formulate possible improvements in the design codes concerning building structures which are subjected to earthquake loads. In addition, suggestions were made concerning ways to incorporate the concepts and methods of discrete mechanics, statistical analysis, as well as earthquake behavior of concrete and metal structures into the seismic design code. Available literature on existing design codes is summarized herein. Design philosophies and methodologies in earthquake engineering were also studied.
