Abstract
This report presents a trial design program to establish the technical viability of the recommendations contained in the report 'The Tentative Provisions for the Development of Seismic Regulations for Buildings' developed by the Applied Technology Council and subsequently modified in a review project conducted by the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) and the National Bureau of Standards. The trial design program is intended to provide information for estimating the impact of adopting the recommendations in the tentative provisions, evaluate the useability of the tentative provisions, establish the technical viability of the tentative provisions and obtain objective information for the future resolution of disputes concerning specific provisions.
