MCEER technical reports are published to communicate specific research data and project results. Reports are written by MCEER-funded researchers, and provide information on a variety of fields of interest in earthquake engineering. The proceedings from conferences and workshops sponsored by MCEER are also published in this series.
MCEER’s web site offers a complete list of technical reports, abstracts, and prices. The publications catalog allows users to search the report list by subject, title and author, and to place orders for these reports. Visit the site at http://mceer.buffalo.edu/publications/default.asp.
Over 100 experts from a wide variety of backgrounds participated in Lessons from the World Trade Center Terrorist Attack: Management of Complex Civil Emergencies and Terrorism-Resistant Civil Engineering Design, held in New York City on June 24-25, 2002. The proceedings summarize the findings from the workshop and include, in digital format (on CD-ROM), the presentations made by most of the speakers. This special format was designed to share, to the fullest extent possible, the visuals and video-clips that constituted an essential part of some presentations and greatly enriched communication of the concepts presented. Complementing these electronic presentations are abstracts from most presentations and short biographical sketches of most authors. Finally, a few authors volunteered additional longer technical documents, which are included on the CD-ROM.
