Abstract

The response records obtained in three buildings located in San Jose, California are examined and interpreted in this paper to identify their basic behavioral characteristics and engineering design parameters such as period, damping, and mode shapes. The buildings range in height from 10 to 13 stories. Observations related to the seismic response of different types of structural systems are extracted from this data.
