Abstract
This workshop provides a means for the exchange of information related to the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice in the design and construction of seismic-resistant reinforced concrete buildings, to evaluate current progress, and to establish research needs and priorities for future work. Volumes 2 and 3 comprise the technical reports and papers that were presented. Topic areas in Volume 3 include: design methods and experimental and analytical investigations related to the earthquake-resistant reinforced concrete building construction of moment-resisting frames; design methods and experimental and analytical investigations related to the earthquake-resistant reinforced concrete building construction of frame-wall structures; foundations and retaining structures; experimental investigations of real buildings, models of complete buildings, and large subassemblages of buildings; and design methods and experimental and analytical investigations related to the earthquake-resistant reinforced concrete building construction of prestressed and prefabricated structures.
