Soviet Strong-Motion and Vibration-and-Blast Seismographs.
A description of the current state of the art of Soviet strong-motion and vibration-and-blast seismographs, taken from Soviet publications available in the United States through early 1975. Intended primarily for U.S. seismologists working with strong-motion data, and persons interested in Soviet advances in seismic instruments, the report contains four tables listing the technical specifications of Soviet seismometers and accelerometers used most widely in galvanometrically recording strong-motion seismographs; a description of recorders; characteristics of four of the most widely used strong-motion instruments; and specifications of direct-recording, three-component seismograph systems. Also treated are auxiliary equipment, including seismic triggers, and seismic engineering networks. 84 pp. Ref.
