TCLEE 11 will help post-earthquake investigators become familiar with the overall operation of major lifeline systems, with the function and operation of lifeline facilities and equipment, with past seismic performance, and with methods to gather pertinent information.

lifelines Lifelines are structures that are important or critical for a community to function, such as roadways, pipelines, powerlines, sewers, communications, and port facilities.

INTRODUCTION The question of appropriate seismic hazard input for lifetime seismic risk analysis has been discussed extensively over the past several years Cited by: Over 40 states in the United States are subject to risk from earthquake, facing potential serious loss of life and injury to citizens, damage to the built environment and resulting economic losses in these areas.

While tremendous progress has been made over the years, much remains to be done to mitigate this risk. Improvements in design approaches and methods, improved codes and standards and. What is Seismic Hazard. Seismic hazard is the potential for, or probability of, dangerous earthquake-related phenomena.

Most often, this is ground shaking but it could also be liquefaction or fault rupture at the ground surface. Why Do We Assess Hazard. The results of seismic hazard assessment are used in a variety of applications.

Seismic Hazard Assessment: Issues and Alternatives ZHENMING WANG 1 Abstract—Seismic hazard and risk are two very important concepts in engineering design and other policy considerations.

Although seismic hazard and risk have often been used inter-changeably, they are fundamentally different. Furthermore, seismicCited by: Seismic Assessment of Structures and Lifelines M.

Fragiadakis*, D. Vamvatsikos, M.G. Karlaftis, N.D. Lagaros, M. Papadrakakis School of Civil Engineering, National Technical University of Athens, Greece ABSTRACT We discuss the current state-of-the-art on the assessment of systems (structures and lifelines) subjected to seismic loading.

The 26 selected papers cover building performance during earthquakes, performance-based design, vulnerability, seismic isolation and energy dissipation, the upgrade of buildings to mitigate seismic hazard, case studies, experimental studies, and numerical analysis.

Earthquake Hazard, Risk, and Disasters presents the latest scientific developments and reviews of research addressing seismic hazard and seismic risk, including causality rates, impacts on society, preparedness, insurance and mitigation.

The current controversies in seismic hazard assessment and earthquake prediction are addressed from different points of view.

Main Features of Lifelines. Lifelines refer to the complex system and network assets of connected components, usually interacting with other components and systems, which are performing vital functions that are essential to sustain the life and the growth of a community, such as producing, transporting, and distributing goods or services.

Earthquake Hazards The type of hazard depends on the strength of seismic activity, along with such factors as local topographic and built features, subsurface geology and groundwater. A large earthquake will always be followed by a sequence of aftershocks.
