The Eleventh Joint Meeting of the U.S. - Japan Panel on Wind and Seismic Effects was held in Tsukuba, Japan on September 4-7, 1979. The proceedings of the Joint Meeting include the program, the formal resolution and the technical papers. The subjects covered in the paper include the engineering characteristics of wind, the characteristics of earthquake ground motions, the earthquake response of structures, the wind response of structures, recent design criteria against wind and earthquake disturbances, the design and analysis of special structures, the evaluation, repairing, and retrofitting for wind and earthquake disaster, earthquake disaster prevention planning, storm surge and tsunamis, and technical cooperation with developing countries.
