World Trade Center Series

Based on the premise that the World Trade Center attack can be seen as a "proxy" for what a major earthquake might do in a complex, densely populated, modern urban environment, this series, “Engineering and Organizational Issues Related to The World Trade Center Terrorist Attack” presents an overview of damage to nearby buildings, an in-depth damage assessment of a particular building, the use of remote sensing in post-disaster conditions, an extension of performance based earthquake engineering design principles to multiple hazards, and the proceedings of a workshop that focused on lessons learned following the WTC attack.
