Abstract:

The objective of the study reported herein was to determine the response, up to collapse, of a conventional floor and framing system typical of the systems which would be located over a basement fallout shelter in a steel frame building. Static and dynamic tests were conducted on two 14.5-scale models of the basement shelter area from a multistory steel frame prototype structure designed for this study.
