Abstract:

The objective of the overall research program is to develop an evaluation procedure applicable to existing NSS-type structures and private homes. Past efforts have been concerned with examining exterior walls window glass steel frame connections applications to actual buildings reinforced concrete floor systems, including restrained slabs wood-joist floors and the dynamic inelastic analysis of a steel frame building. Since this is the final report in this effort, a summary of the evaluation procedure for existing structures is presented in the report. Also included is the flow chart developed for a computer program to analyze a building subsystem i.e., the dynamic response and collapse of all exterior and interior walls on one floor level of a building.
