Data preparation procedures for a micro-computer based program called Micro-SARB are presented. The program is for the longitudinal and transverse load seismic analysis of regular bridges using the procedure outlined in the Applied Technology Council document ATC-6, [Ref. 1]. This manual describes the modes of data preparation and presents six examples to illustrate different features of the program. The technical background about the development of the program is presented in Refs. 4 and 5 (Abstract by authors).
