Abstract

This study focuses on the correlation of analytical predictions with the measured seismic response of two reinforced concrete moment resisting frames during the October 1, 1987 Whittier Narrows earthquake. The first building is a five story warehouse with a flat slab and a perimeter frame and the second is a twenty story hotel with moment resisting frames in both directions. Both buildings have a regular, rectangular, symmetric layout. To study the seismic response three dimensional models of the two buildings were subjected to the accelerations recorded at the base. The study assesses the effect of modeling assumptions on the fundamental period and the response of the buildings.
