Vertical Responses of Twelve Instrumented Structures

Vertical Responses of Twelve Instrumented Structures Recorded During the Northridge Earthquake, Yousef Bozorgnia, Stephen A. Mahin, A. Gerald Brady. The authors review characteristics of free-field vertical ground motion, focusing on recorded vertical responses of selected instrumented structures during Northridge earthquake. The structures included in the research were four steel buildings, five concrete structures, and three base-isolated buildings. The final chapter evaluates the results of the research and discusses the current seismic provisions in the building code concerning vertical acceleration. Publication and distribution of the report funded by FEMA. December 1995, 275 pp.

Under a cooperative agreement established with FEMA, the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute awards annually -- since 1992 -- a professional fellowship to provide an opportunity for a practicing professional to gain greater skills and broader expertise in earthquake hazards reduction either by enhancing knowledge in the Fellow's own field, or by broadening his or her education in a related, but unfamiliar discipline. This unique fellowship is designed to bring together experienced practitioners with the academic professionals in order to broaden the research base with challenges faced in practice.
