Basic experimental data are presented for four tests performed on a full-scale steel-frame building: (1) Static unloading test, involving strain-gage measurements on structural members loaded by the vertical dead weight of the structure, (2) Strain-gage measurements of temperature-induced strains during a 24-hour period, (3) Strain-gage measurement of static strains caused by a lateral force applied by a cable, and (4) Dynamic resonance tests in which the structure was excited laterally by sinusoidal force generators. In connection with the interpretation of these experiments, measurements were also made of ground and structure vibrations caused by an adjacent power generation plant.
