Master thesis: "Vergleich unterschiedlicher Berechnungsmethoden für Erdbeben-Beanspruchung im Hochbau" (Comparison of different calculation methods for earthquake loading in building construction)
The paper deals with seismic impacts, dynamic behaviour, earthquake-resistant design as well as the procedure during the determination of seismic loads on a national and global level. In the practical part earthquake loads were determined using the example of a residential building.
