Sponsored by the Structural Division of ASCE. This volumeAcollects key papers on earthquake engineering by George W. Housner, who more than any other person has been responsible for the remarkable development of this subject during the past fifty years. Included here are the basic research papers which form the scientific background for modern earthquake design. Topics include: the characteristics of strong earthquake ground motion, the response of structures to earthquakes, A the development of response spectrum techniques, the formulation of design spectrum, dynamic tests of structures, seismic zoning problems, response of fluid systems to earthquake excitation, and special problems of critical structures such as dams and nuclear power plants. The volume thus not only presents much material of historical interest, but it is virtually a textbook on modern earthquake engineering.Included here are the basic research papers which form the scientific background for modern earthquake design.
