Workshop Series

U.S.-Japan Cooperative Research on Earthquake Resistant Design of Lifeline Facilities and Countermeasures Against Soil Liquefaction

The research program has developed case histories of earthquake-induced ground deformations and their effects on lifeline facilities in the US and Japan, resulting in the publication of a two-volume report. In addition, the proceedings from the workshops cover case history data, analytical modeling, experimental studies and recommendations for improved practices.
