Abstract
The proceedings of this workshop are part of a longstanding US-Japan cooperative research activity that focuses on earthquake resistant design of lifeline facilities and countermeasures against soil liquefaction. Since its inception, this activity has assisted other research agendas, such as cooperative research among the U.S. Earthquake Engineering Research Centers and the U.S.-Japan Cooperative Research Program on Urban Earthquake Disaster Mitigation. In the future, US-Japan cooperative research on lifelines and liquefaction will benefit from collaborative experimentation and analytical modeling at many of the superb testing facilities both in Japan and within the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES).
