A three-dimensional model of a two story Oakland office building was subjected to response spectra
and time history analyses developed from the California Division of Mines and Geology Strong Motion
Instrumentation Program (SMIP) Loma Prieta earthquake records. Although the building had a severe
plan torsional irregularity, and was subjected to large peak ground, second floor and roof
accelerations, the building suffered no damage. These dynamic analyses showed that the building was
twice as stiff and strong as required by current 1988 Uniform Building Code provisions.
