Following the construction of the sixteen story Jerningham Apartments building in Wellington, New Zealand, small amplitude shaking tests were conducted on the building and the development of an inelastic analysis procedure enabled the possible elastoplastic response of a portion of the reinforced concrete framework to be investigated using a digital computer. In this paper the correlation between the predicted and measured periods of elastic vibration is briefly referred to and the results of elastic and elasto-plastic analyses of the selected portion of the spandrel beam frame are presented.
