ABSTRACT

Short-Period Building Collapse Performance and Recommendations for Improving Seismic Design: Volume 2 -- Study of One-To-Four Story Wood Light-Frame Buildings   [open pdf - 21MB]

From the Introduction: "This report describes the approach, analyses, findings, conclusions, and recommendation for one in a series of studies on the gap between analytically predicted and historically observed earthquake-induced collapse rates of short-period buildings. It presents work focused on wood light-frame buildings with structural panel sheathing (herein referred to as 'wood light-frame' systems). The Applied Technology Council (ATC) was commissioned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to conduct these studies as part of the ATC-116 Project series, 'Solutions to the Issue of Short Period Building Performance.'"
