Description
 
D.R. Todd, N.J. Carino, R.M. Chung, H.S. Taylor, A.W. Taylor & W.D. Walton. A team of experts reports that the earthquake that struck the Los Angeles area in January 1994 revealed both good grades & bad for current building codes. The team found that most structures designed & built after the mid-1970s -- when tougher building codes were enacted -- performed well. However, it urged improvements in codes for parking garages due to several unexpected collapses of relatively modern structures. It also called for national seismic standards for protection of electrical power, gas, water, telecommunications, & other lifelines.
