Computer Modeling in the Construction Industry: Ohbayashi Corporation’s Research Laboratory: A Reprint from “Scientific Information Bulletin”
David K. Kahaner (au)
In 1990, while reading the Japanese journal “Computer Simulation,” author David Kahaner was surprised by an article about a computer simulation of the Loma Prieta earthquake damage to the San Francisco Bay Bridge that occurred on 17 Oct. 1989, complete with 3-dimensional color graphics showing the second level of the bridge collapsing onto the first. The article reported that a video of this computation was shown on the NHK TV News program and was very well received. The computations were done by the Ohbayashi Corp. at their Technical Research Institute on the outskirts of Tokyo. This provided a good opportunity for Kahaner to review the computational activities of this facility, a summary of which is presented here.
