Abstract
The publication, the proceedings of the Joint Meeting, includes the program, list of members, formal resolutions, and technical papers. Papers were presented under five themes: Wind engineering, earthquake engineering, storm surge and tsunamis, U.S.-Japan cooperative research program, and reports on the Nihonkai-Chubu earthquake and the Naganoken-Seibu earthquake. Subjects covered in the papers presented include: (1) characteristics of strong winds; (2) wind loads on structures and design criteria; (3) earthquake ground motions; (4) soil liquefaction studies and methods to improve liquefaction resistance; (5) seismic loads on structures and design criteria; (6) stress analyses of pipelines during earthquakes; (7) full-scale seismic experiments; (8) earthquake hazard reduction program; (9) use of the microcomputer for earthquake studies; (10) quantitative evaluation of damages caused by winds and earthquakes; and, (11) tsunami research projects.
