Seismically Resistant Structural Systems

Notes:
A variety of structural capacity parameters can be investigated when creating a seismic resistant system. Ratios of parameters that vary between the extremes are shown. Key elements are the area of material used to resist system forces relative to the building area. Other factors of lateral stiffness to building mass; ratios of vertical loads on elements. In a particular building some of these parameters may be critical and thus give and indication of unsatisfactory earthquake performance.Digitized from a set of 35 mm slides from AIA/ACSA Council on Architectural Research; showing details effect of earthquake on building structures.
