Abstract

A study is made of the performance of two reinforced concrete bearing wall buildings subjected to recent California earthquakes. The buildings are analyzed to verify modeling techniques. The buildings are compared with similar buildings in Chile, and based on the comparison, conclusions are drawn from the Chilean practice regarding likely performance in strong US earthquakes. Design recommendations are made.
