Dynamic aspects of the code for the design of earthquake resistant buildings
A brief review is given of the most important aspects of the dynamic behaviour of buildings, during elastic and inelastic deformations under earthquake loads, which must be considered for the effective utilization of the NZS 4203 "Code of Practice for General Structural Design and Design Loadings".
