Abstract
This report documents the activities of Technical Committee 3: Foundations. Other committee reports are similarly available. The task of Technical Committee 3 was to review and refine Chapter 6, Soil-Structure Interaction and Chapter 7, Foundation Design Requirements in the ATC report (NBS SP-510) entitled, 'Tentative Provisions for the Development of Seismic Regulations for Buildings.' Two meetings were held. The opening meeting of the group was on December 11, 1979, and the concluding meeting was on February 5, 1980. The minutes of these meetings and the findings/recommendations of Technical Committee 3 are presented in this report. These recommendations were made to the parent group, the Joint Committee on Review and Refinement, and their action on these recommendations is documented in a companion report.
