The ATC-48 report, Built to Resist Earthquakes, The Path to Quality Seismic Design and Construction, was developed under a contract with the California Seismic Safety Commission and prepared by a Joint Venture partnership of ATC and the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC). (Published 1999, 314 pages)
ABSTRACT: Bound in a three-ring notebook, the curriculum contains training materials pertaining to the seismic design and retrofit of wood-frame buildings, concrete and masonry construction, and nonstructural components. Included are detailed, illustrated, instructional material (lessons) and a series of multi-part Briefing Papers and Job Aids to facilitate improvement in the quality of seismic design, inspection, and construction.
The Briefing Papers associated with this project can be found here.
