The ATC-10-1 report, Critical Aspects of Earthquake Ground Motion and Building Damage Potential, was co-funded by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). (Published 1984, 259 pages)
ABSTRACT: This document contains 19 state-of-the-art papers on ground motion, structural response, and structural design issues presented by prominent engineers and earth scientists in an ATC seminar. The main theme of the papers is to identify the critical aspects of ground motion and building performance that currently are not being considered in building design. The report also contains conclusions and recommendations of working groups convened after the Seminar.
