Andrew Goh and Colleagues, As a start, I would contact the Building Seismic Safety Council, 1201 L Street, N. W., Suite 400, Washington, D. C. 20005, Telephone (202) 289-7800, FAX (202) 289-1092. Ask BSSC for their list of publications which I believe are FREE to residents of the United States. These publications cover a wide range of issues related to the evaluation and retrofit of existing buildings to improve their seismic performance. Of particular interest are publications FEMA 178 "NEHRP Handbook for the Seismic Evaluation of Existing Buildings, 1992" and FEMA 172 "NEHRP Handbook of Techniques for the Seismic Rehabilitation of Existing Buildings, 1992." Please do not be mislead that just because these publications are FREE to residents of the United States that they are not very worthwhile. I know personally many of the dedicated structural engineers and architects, many who worked pro-bono, on the BSSC Committees, that were funded by FEMA, that produced these important publications. When you contact BSSC tell them that Frank McClure sent you. If you find these publications worthwhile, please write a letter of appreciation to Mr. Ugo Morelli, FEMA, 500 C Street, SW, Washington DC, 20472. Through his dedicated work he made these publications possible. Good luck. Keep in touch if you need additional information. Frank McClure fmcclure(--nospam--at)ccnet.com ...
