Real-time simulated earthquake motion of high rise structures

  • James Lord Albert C. Martin and Associates, Los Angeles, USA

Abstract

The real-time simulation of a high rise structure during an earthquake represents a marked step forward in the structural design field. It affords a graphic display of the dynamic behaviour and characteristics of such a structure. The simulation can be presented on a CRT or by means of a 16 or 35 mm. movie and tailored for client or technical viewing.
