This paper describes portions of the document, Guidelines for Using Strong-Motion Data for Postearthquake Response and Postearthquake
Structural Evaluation, currently being developed by the Applied Technology Council for the California Division of Mines and Geologys
Strong Motion Instrumentation Program 2000 Data Interpretation Project. The focus of the paper is on guidance for using strong-motion
data to evaluate the performance of structures in the immediate earthquake aftermath. Topics addressed include strong-motion data
sources and processing, damage indicators that can often be observed in recorded data, and methods for rapid interpretation of
strong-motion data to evaluate structural performance.
