Abstract:
On October 15, 1979 during the Imperial Valley earthquake, the Imperial County Services Building, located in El Centro, California, became the first extensively instrumented building to sustain significant structural damage induced by seismic loads. This report presents a preliminary assessment of the dynamic behavior of this building based on the vibration data recorded prior to (ambient), during, and after (ambient) the October 15, 1979 earthquake. The thirteen building and the three nearby free field records obtained during this earthquake are analyzed in detail in the time and frequency domains to trace the nonlinear response.
