Description:

This website, produced by MCEER, provides an explanation of how buildings typically respond to earthquakes. The article discusses physics concepts such as Newton’s Laws, inertial forces, and the frequency and period of buildings. Material properties including stiffness, ductility, and damping are also discussed in terms of their influence on building responses to earthquakes.
