A study of non-structural damage observed in the instrumented Santa Clara County Government
Center building, during the Loma Prieta, California, earthquake of October 17, 1989, has been
carried out, to correlate the recorded CSMIP response data with observed non-structural
component damage. A methodology is presented to assess the performance and behavior of non-
structural building components during earthquakes.
