A general introduction to the seismic design problem
This paper is reproduced from the proceedings of a seminar on "Seismic Problems in Structural Engineering" arranged by the Departments of Civil Engineering and Extension Studies of the University of Canterbury, and held in Christchurch from May 13 to 16, 1968. The paper was presented in the opening session of that seminar, and because of its wide and interesting range is now published in the Society's Bulletin.
