A point of much interest to engineers is the interaction of a building and the ground during an earthquake. There are several facets of this problem that have a bearing on the stresses produced in a building during an earthquake. First, there is the question of the influence of the building on recorded ground motion. The majority of the accelerometers for recording strong ground motion are in the basements of buildings and hence record the motion of the base of the building. The question… CONTINUE READING
