The Earthquake Resistance of Structures

This paper claims only to be a very brief survey of the problems presented to the engineer by earthquake shocks. It has been impossible to do more than deal in generalities; but it is hoped that the references given in the paper, and at the end, may be of some assistance to those engineers who wish to study the subject more deeply. The subject has here been discussed in three sections. In Section “A” the geological aspects have been discussed, while Section “B” treats of the behaviour of engineering structures during a shock, and Section “C” deals with the problem of building to resist shock.
