Projects : Earthquake Damage Assessment and Repair

Earthquake Damage Assessment and Repair Project

Experiments to first induce realistic earthquake demands and demands, then implement documented repairs, and re-test to verify the adequacy of the repairs.

Overview

CUREE is conducting ongoing development of Guidelines for Earthquake Damage Assessment and Repair. The goal is to provide a fair, accurate, and well-documented Guidelines for a general audience as well as engineers involved in evaluations of earthquake damage after an earthquake.

The project manager of these efforts is Dr. John Osteraas of Exponent Failure Analysis Associates. Document EDA2, General Guidelines for the Assessment and Repair of Earthquake Damage in Residential Woodframe Buildings was completed in October of 2007. Document EDA6, Engineering Guidelines for the Assessment and Repair of Earthquake Damage in Residential Woodframe Buildings is under development and currently seeking funding to finish the project.
