Abstract
The American Society of Civil Engineers, Technical Council on Lifeline Earthquake Engineering was awarded a grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF BCS-9011325) to develop a computer-based database of pipeline damage and enter data collected from the Loma Prieta earthquake. The earthquake occurred near the San Francisco Bay area in California, USA, on October 17, 1989. The purpose of the project is to develop a computer-based database to preserve information on the location, pipe size, pipe material and type of pipeline damage for the engineering, geological, seismological, and seismic risk communities, and for lifeline researchers. It is the intent to add pipeline damage data from future earthquakes to this database as resources permit.
