This report presents structural response predictions for ESSEX-V, which was scheduled for October 1975. Ground motion input on the basis of previous ESSEX events is applied to analytic models of a bridge, a pipeline, a POL storage tank, a hangarette, and a buried arch and rectangular structure. Response predictions, using finite element methods, for gage ranging and recommendations on locating the structures at the test site are given.
