Implications for Earthquake Risk Reduction in the U.S. from the Kocaeli, Turkey, Earthquake of Aug. 17, 1999
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.
