Description
 
Thomas L. Holzer (au). The region hit by the magnitude 7.4 earthquake is the industrial heartland & the most densely populated section of Turkey. Most of the collapsed & damaged buildings were of reinforced concrete construction. Their poor performance was due primarily to the poor quality of construction & failure to enforce the local building code. However, the earthquake’s strong velocity pulse & long duration were also important factors. Chapters: earthquake forecasts; geologic setting & earthquake history; surface faulting; ground shaking; liquefaction; performance of the built environment: buildings, Trans European Motorway, & earth dams; & implications for the U.S.
