Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structural Engineering in Natural Hazards Mitigation

Abstract:

A research prospectus is presented for improving present methods of structural evaluation for concrete and masonry buildings. Specifically, the proposed research plan is limited to strength evaluations of lateral strength that are necessary to insure the safety of buildings subjected to earthquakes or strong winds.
