    The U.S. Department of Energy's Y-12 Plant, located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, is conducting a comprehensive research program to evaluate the seismic capacity of unreinforced hollow clay tile infilled steel frames. This paper summarizes analyses and the results of in-situ and laboratory testing. Evaluations of unit tile, mortar, masonry assemblages, and large-scale building components are presented. Building components tested include infilled frames loaded in-plane and out-of-plane.
