Abstract
The Twelfth Joint Meeting of the U.S.-Japan Panel on Wind and Seismic Effects was held in Gaithersburg, Maryland on May 19-23, 1980. The proceedings of the Joint Meeting include the program, the formal resolutions, the Task Committee Reports, and the technical papers. The subjects covered in the papers include: (1) the characterization of seismic ground motion, (2) the characterization of natural wind and extreme wind records, (3) structural response to earthquake loading, (4) storm surge and tsunamis, (5) recent developments in seismic design criteria, (6) technical cooperation with developing countries, (7) earthquake hazard mitigation, and (8) structural response to wind loading.
