The California Strong Motion Instrumentation Program (CSMIP) of the Division of Mines and
Geology has obtained and processed a number of significant building response records from its
network of seismographs in California. This study was conducted using strong motion data to
investigate the performance of nonstructural elements and building components under actual
earthquake loadings and to improve the seismic provisions of the building codes. The study
includes the analysis of building response records obtained primarily from the Loma Prieta
earthquake of 1989.
