Document Type: Journal Paper


Basic requirements for the design of concrete buildings for earthquake resistance are given. The elastic behavior of prestressed components and their allowable stresses and load factors are evaluated with respect to earthquake loads. The energy absorption capacity of prestressed members under flexure, shear, combined bending, and shear is reviewed. Prestressing of concrete slabs, shafts, and rigid frames for earthquake resistance in buildings is described. Seismic design of tall buildings for dynamic loads is compared to design for static loads using code values.
