Abstract: This study was conducted for Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (HQUSACE) under Project 4A162784AT41, "Military Facilities Engineering Technology"; Work Unit FM-CW4, "Seismic Retrofit Techniques for Existing Concrete Buildings." The technical monitor was Charles Gutberlet, CEMP-ET. The work was performed by the Engineering Division (FL-E) of the Facilities Technology Laboratory (FL), U.S. Army Construction Engineering Reserch Laboratories (USACERL). The USACERL principal investigators were John Hayes and Pamalee Brady. Elizabeth Dausman, Brian Umbright, Douglas Foutch, and Sharon Wood are associated with the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). Appreciation is given to the various organizations that supported this research: the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the National Center for Earthquake Engineering Research for research funding; 3M Corporation for donated engineering expertise and damper devices; and Ivy Wire and Steel for donated steel reinforcement. Larry M. Windingland is Chief, CECER-FL-E, Donald F. Fornier, Jr. is Acting Operations Chief, and Alvin Smith is Acting Chief, CECER-FL. The USACERL technical editor was William J. Wolfe, Information Management Office. LTC David J. Rehbein is Commander and Acting Director of USACERL, and Dr. Michael J. O'Connor is Technical Director.
