Abstract: This book comprises the proceedings of the "2001 Earthquake Engineering Symposium for Young Researchers," conducted August 10-12, 2001, in Salt Lake City. Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Research Experience for Undergraduates Program, the symposium was the culmination of an eight-week program in which each student interned with a faculty advisor affiliated with one of the three earthquake centers: the Mid-America Earthquake Center (MAE), the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER), or the Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research (MCEER). The proceedings contain the presentations of the research interns on many facets of earthquake engineering. Numerous figures accompany the text.
