US/Japan Cooperative Research Program in Earthquake Engineering on Repair and Retrofit of Structures. Proceedings of the Third Seminar Held at San Francisco, California on May 13-15, 1982.
Hanson, R. D.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC., May 1982, 373 p.
Papers delivered at the seminar are presented. Among the topics addressed are anchorage and diaphragm systems for tilt-up-wall buildings; epoxy repaired concrete beams; ways to estimate damages and repairs for buildings affected by the Miyagi-Ken-Oki earthquake; the development of post-earthquake measures for buildings and structures damaged by earthquakes; and an overview of the state-of-the-art in seismic strengthening of existing reinforced concrete buildings in Japan. It is noted that increased activity in repairing and retrofitting structures is taking place in both the United States and Japan. It is recommended that the practice of including presentations by repair and retrofit designers prior to field visits to those specific structures be continued. A seminar agenda and list of participants is provided.
