Studying Meyer Library: Reviewing structures from the standpoint of Stanford’s Seismic Guidelines
DCI Engineers provided a seismic evaluation to assess the seismic performance of the J. Henry Meyer Memorial Library on the Stanford University Campus. The purpose of this study was to identify any life-safety seismic deficiencies associated with the facility based on Stanford’s “Seismic Engineering Guidelines.”
- Based on the findings, a cost analysis for a minimum retrofit scheme was developed to address these issues.
- Meyer Library is a five-story, 146,000-sf concrete building erected in 1967. The building consists of four floors, with a below-grade basement.
- The top floor was designed for the future addition of another floor.
