Having served, pro bono, on a State of California, Seismic Safety Commission
Proposition 122, Over-sight Panel, for the subject Report would like to bring
to your attention its availability.

This 2-volume, 612 page report provides a recommended methodology for the
seismic evaluation and retrofit of older concrete buildings.  The methodology
forcuses specifically on concrete frame buildings, generally constructed from
the 1940s to the mid-1970s, and concrete frame buildings with concrete walls,
generally constructed from the early 1900s to the mid-1970s.  In general,
however, the document provides information on emerging techniques applicable
to most building types.

The Report presents excellent discussion and examples of "Push-Over
Analyses."
