New approach can rapidly estimate damage from earthquakes (Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America)

A new approach that can rapidly estimate damage to tall buildings following a large earthquake has been developed by researchers. The approach involves creating a database of building responses to typical earthquake-related ground motions. After an earthquake, an analysis of the ground motions can indicate what type of damage is likely to have occurred to … Continue reading New approach can rapidly estimate damage from earthquakes (Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America)
