Abstract

This study examines the measured seismic response behavior of the CSULA Administration Building during the October 1, 1987 Whittier Narrows Earthquake. The shear forces and interstory drifts calculated from measured seismic responses are compared with UBC design requirements to ascertain the validity of UBC requirements. A three dimensional elastic model was constructed and subjected to the recorded base accelerations to study the correlation of analytical modeling predictions with measured seismic responses.
