Abstract
This volume includes thirty eight technical papers presented at the Tenth Joint Meeting of the U.S.-Japan Panel's eight task committees. The subjects covered in the Joint Meeting include: (1) natural wind characterization and extreme wind records, (2) characterization of earthquake ground motions and strong-motion earthquake data, (3) engineering seismology, (4) response of hydraulic and earth structures to seismic forces, (5) structural responses to wind loading, (6) recent developments in seismic design criteria, (7) design and analysis of special structures, (8) damage evaluation, repair and retrofit, (9) earthquake hazard mitigation, and (10) storm surge and tsunami.
