      Engineering Structures. Zhai CH, Li C, Kunnath SK and Wen WP (). “An efficient algorithm for identifying pulse-like ground motions based on significant velocity half-cycles,” Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics. 47 (3), Earthquake engineering is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering that designs and analyzes structures, such as buildings and bridges, with earthquakes in mind. Its overall goal is to make such structures more resistant to earthquakes. An earthquake (or seismic) engineer aims to construct structures that will not be damaged in minor shaking and will avoid serious damage or collapse in a.

Performance of Structures During the Loma Prieta Earthquake of Octo (NIST SP ) by Nist,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. On Octoat p.m. (PDT), a magnitude earthquake severely shook the San Francisco and Monterey Bay regions. The epicenter was located near Loma Prieta peak in the Santa Cruz Mountains, approximately 14 km (9 mi) northeast of Santa Cruz and 96 km (60 mi) south-southeast of San Francisco.

local time. Caused by a slip along the San Andreas Fault, the quake lasted 10–15 seconds and measured on the moment magnitude scale, or on the open-ended.

The Loma Prieta earthquake occurred on California’s Central Coast on October 17 at p.m. local time ( UTC). The shock was centered in The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park approximately 10 mi (16 km) northeast of Santa Cruz on a section of the San Andreas Fault System and was named for the nearby Loma Prieta Peak in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
