Abstract

Before 1964, there was no seismic-resistant design code for buildings or other structures in China. Earthquake-resistant designs were not considered for most buildings. However, designers of some important structures and buildings located in areas of known high seismic activity were required by the authorities to consider earthquake effects. A draft for a seismic-resistant design code in China was prepared in 1964; but unfortunately, this draft was never officially approved or enforced.
