Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1962, Vol. 88, Issue 2, Pg. 81-110

Document Type: Journal Paper


Formula for determining seismic lateral-force factors similar to those used in building codes is developed from seismological data; it is based on theoretical reactions of simple, low-damped oscillators to recorded earthquake motions, assuming that each oscillator simulates motion of particular type of engineering structure; 4 relationships and concepts incorporated in formula are indicated.
