Istanbul: To Redesign or Rebuild? By Emma Ward
eBook (PDF): $0.00
This book will discuss the future of Istanbul, Turkey’s largest city. It is predicted that a major earthquake will strike the region within the next 30 years, causing widespread disruption and... More > loss of life. Seismologists and engineers working on this topic understand the damage that may be caused, and what could be done to help prevent it, but no one has asked what becomes of the city afterwards. To help answer this question, two of the strongest earthquakes in European history have been chosen as case studies. Lisbon was redesigned following the 1755 earthquake, and Messina was rebuilt in the aftermath of the 1905 earthquake. Using the information presented on these examples, together with field research in Istanbul, proposals for the redesign and rebuild strategies will be investigated and presented for discussion.< Less

This project developed a seismic model for Oregon truck routes using Risk for Earthquake Damage to Roadway Systems (REDARS2) and HAZUS-MH. We refined data from the first model to more realistically... More > represent bridge inventory, address the seismicity of the Pacific Northwest (PNW), conduct sensitivity analyses of soil data and develop a seismic network model of Oregon bridges to assess roadway vulnerability. Assumptions were reviewed and Oregon data was incorporated to replace defaults for economic loss. The largest probable PNW earthquake is a subduction zone earthquake. A shortcoming of REDARS2 is its inability to incorporate subduction zone attenuation. USGS shakemaps for Cascadia subduction zone events are incorporated to add that capability. Analyses of the network incorporating bridges and post processing of the data with input from Oregon DOT engineers resulted in recommendations for bridge route priorities. More data and cost-benefit analyses are needed for final retrofit decisions.< Less

More > trillions of dollars to repair. Fifteen months after the disaster, when we made our field trip, recovery was already underway. New embankments were being constructed along the coast of the Sendai plain in Miyage Province and debris had been collected into huge sorted piles. But further north, in Iwate Province a debate was raging between the safety conscious who wanted to construct high embankments and those who wanted to maintain their intimate contact with the shore and sea. I went to Kobe and Kyoto to visit engineers in earthquake institutes and I also went site seeing and was beguiled by Japanese architecture and landscape.< Less
