Abstract

New buildings may soon incorporate seismic design criteria developed by the Center for Building Technology of the National Bureau of Standards (NBS). The design criteria reflect the current state of the art in earthquake engineering in a form adaptable for implementation by standards organizations, model code groups, federal agencies, and other regulatory groups.

The National Science Foundation and NBS are now planning how such criteria can best be adopted around the nation.
