Earthquakes and Building Construction - III - Calculations for a Six-Storey Steel Frame Building. Designed to resist the stresses set up by Earthquakes.

THE building for which, at the time of writing, tenders are being called, is the new office in Christchurch, NZ., of the State Fire and Accident Insurance Department. The structural design was carried out along the lines which Mr. Norman Gregory has described in an article published in The Structural Engineer of August, 1931, and it is hoped that what follows may be of some value as a practical example of this method of design.
