by G.W. Housner,

Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1959, Vol. 85, Issue 4, Pg. 109-130

Document Type: Journal Paper


Behavior is described by response spectrum curves which show effect of size and distance of earthquake and period and damping of structure; high elastic stresses are developed during strong ground motion; type of limit design is indicated.

Subject Headings: Structural behavior | Earthquakes | Ground motion | Curvature | Damping | Elastic analysis | Seismic design | Plastic design
