Abstract
This publication is the Proceedings of the 30th Joint Meeting of the U.S.-Japan on Wind and Seismic Effects. Thirty-nine oral presentations centered on six themes: (1) Special Session in Celebration of the Panel's 30th Anniversary; (2) Storm and Surge Tsunamis; (3) Earthquake Engineering; (4) Joint Cooperative Research Program; (5) Real Time Information Acquisition and Dissemination; and (6) Wind Engineering. The Panel provides the vehicles to exchange technical data and information and design and construction of civil engineering lifelines, buildings, waterfront, and coastal structures. Panel findings continue to influence ongoing structural engineering research and contribute to the revision and creation of U.S. and Japanese building codes and standards.
