dc.description.abstract Building interstorey drifts remain to be the most direct and accurate indicator of damage potential during earthquakes. However, interstorey drifts are often difficult to measure due to the lack of an absolute frame of reference. Currently, numerical integration of acceleration data is the most commonly used technique to experimentally determine interstorey drifts in real buildings. This technique is very sensitive to low frequency errors and requires high quality acceleration data. Traditionally, buildings are rarely instrumented and consequently actual building acceleration and displacement data are rare. With recent advances in computing processing power, sensor and data transmission technologies, it has now become accessible for buildings to be densely instrumented and continuously monitored for vibration. This paper presents interstorey drift estimates of a midrise building in Wellington during the Cook Strait earthquake sequence. A number of different interstorey drift estimation algorithms were applied carefully. They produced very similar predictions and enabled displacement profiles to be predicted. en
