Discusses considerations involved with modeling concrete masonry building structures at one-quarter scale and reports on tests carried out to evaluate mechanical properties of reduced-scale masonry materials. Procedures used to design and test two different three-story building structures to failure on a shaking table are also presented. Samples of dynamic response are presented to demonstrate the relevance of using scale models for earthquake engineering research.
