T02. Ground Failure during the 1964 Alaska earthquakeShow/HideSoil/Tsunami

DATE/TIME: Tuesday July 22, 2014 10:30 am - 12:00 pm ROOM: Tikahtnu E/F, FL3 Dena'ina

DESCRIPTION: Ground failures during the 1964 Alaska earthquake were a seminal event in the development of geotechnical earthquake engineering; very little attention was paid by engineers to seismically generated ground failure prior to that event. Several major investigations were made of these failures by Harry Seed and other geotechnical engineers and by USGS and Corps of Engineers personnel. I began my career with USGS in 1967, only 3 years after the earthquake, where I was a colleague with many of the original investigators. I conducted several studies of these failures as part of my USGS research, relying heavily upon personal conversations with these investigators, all of whom are now retired from the profession and many have passed on. Thus presentations from original investigators are not possible; however, some of us who have studied their work are.

T08. Resilience of communities including infrastructures interdependenciesShow/HideRisk and Resilience

DATE/TIME: Tuesday July 22, 2014 10:30 am - 12:00 pm ROOM: Tubughnenq' 3, FL2 Dena'ina

DESCRIPTION: The aim of this special session is to answer the following question: How can the technical, operational and social elements of critical structures and infrastructure systems be integrated, designed and planned for disaster resilience against multiple hazards? Recent disasters such as hurricane Katrina in the U.S. in 2005, the 2010 Chile earthquake or the 2011 Tohoku earthquake in Japan, among others, have triggered the question about the role that the resilience of structures and infrastructural facilities should play for societies to rebound after threats or disasters, some of which cannot be averted. Designing resilient structural and infrastructural systems requires interdisciplinary collaborative efforts to formulate new approaches and metrics that jointly consider performance and post event functionality goals that enhance disaster resilience. The engineering and functional aspects of critical buildings and infrastructure systems should be developed considering their lifetime with respect to impacts from disasters, repair and retrofit interventions, and evolving urban dynamics. Resilient structural and infrastructural systems also require considering interdependencies with other systems, and ultimately how they affect the aftermath of emergencies and disasters. At this time, there are no explicit procedures that suggest how to quantify resilience for structures or in infrastructures in the context of multiple hazards, how to compare structures and systems with one another in terms of their resilience, or how to determine whether individual retrofit interventions on structures or facilities move them in the direction of becoming more resilient. This special session aims to attract academics, researchers, students, post-graduate students and professional engineers dealing with, but not limited to, topics in technical-socio-economic functionality of structures and infrastructures, probabilistic risk and resilience-based design principles for recommended practices and standards, environmental dependencies and interdependencies of individual and spatially distributed structures and infrastructures, optimal considerations in pre- and post-event retrofit and restoration, and resilience based decision support systems for existing and new construction and dependent infrastructures.

DATE/TIME: Tuesday July 22, 2014 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm ROOM: Tikahtnu D, FL3 Dena'ina

DESCRIPTION: This special session will follow on the successful EERI Strong Motion Forum, held at the EERI Annual meeting since the 1990s and the recent COSMOS Strong Motion Forum held in 2012 at the 15WCEE. The session will bring together data users and data providers to improve data awareness and showcase the development of new and innovative user tools to support the application of worldwide ground and structural strong motion data. The EERI Strong Motion Forum has long supported 1) SM instrument deployment in the United States and other strategic locations throughout the world, 2) development of uniform standards for the processing and interpretation of strong motion data, and 3) improved methods for data dissemination to engineers and geoscientists to better inform the public about seismic hazard. COSMOS is a global focal point of international leadership and cooperation for the acquisition, processing, dissemination, and application of the earthquake strong motion data. Topics will include: updates on innovative technologies for data recording in structures and from weak/strong motion networks; improvements in data repositories and dissemination tools; new features of ShakeMap , ShakeCast and Pager using real-time national and global data; international data providers, and international cooperation in strong motion monitoring and data dissemination; updates from international data providers on the current status of their monitoring activities, including any recent enhancements to their networks, and information on access to data. Following the presentations will be an open discussion on the future needs for user tools to help facilitate the use of strong motion data by practicing engineers and the earthquake engineering community in general, and a discussion on removing the barriers to worldwide strong motion data sharing and improving communication and collaboration among data providers and between the providers and data users.

DATE/TIME: Tuesday July 22, 2014 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm ROOM: Tubughnenq' 4, FL2 Dena'ina

DESCRIPTION: Simulation of potential ground motions from large earthquakes, utilizing models of earthquake rupture sources and wave propagation, is an area of active research in the earth science community. Refinement and validation of these models requires collaboration between ground motion modelers and engineering users, and testing/rating methodologies for simulated ground motions to be used in engineering applications. This special session will provide the audience with an introduction to this field, with a focus on research activities coordinated by the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC). Presenters in this session are drawn from a variety of fields including earth scientists, computer scientists, and engineers. The session aims to provide a concise overview of this field in an effort to disseminate work on this topic to conference participants who might not be exposed to earth science research. Session speakers will to highlight the relation between traditional methods of ground motion simulations and new methods currently under development and evaluation.

T25. Confined MasonryShow/HideBuilding Safety

DATE/TIME: Tuesday July 22, 2014 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm ROOM: Board Room, FL2 Dena'ina

DESCRIPTION: Confined masonry construction is among the least understood building structure systems in use today. Except for some Latin American countries and a few countries in Asia where confined masonry is commonly built, building code provisions for confined masonry are often incomplete or inadequate if they even exist at all. North American engineers do not get exposed to confined masonry until they are assigned a confined masonry project in a developing country and have to learn the system on the fly. Some engineers and builders in developing countries where confined masonry is common do not have the technical background to properly design and construct the structural elements. Engineers and government officials in developing countries where confined masonry is not commonly used may not be aware of the benefits of confined masonry relative to similar but poorer performing systems such as unreinforced masonry. This session is intended to introduce confined masonry and the Confined Masonry Network to those not familiar with them and to provide the latest in technical guidelines and research to those who are familiar with confined masonry.

W01. The Canterbury Earthquake Sequence: Observations and Implications for Engineering Seismology and Geotechnical EngineeringShow/HideEarthquake Lessons

DATE/TIME: Wednesday July 23, 2014 10:30 am - 12:00 pm ROOM: Tikahtnu A/B, FL3 Dena'ina

DESCRIPTION: The focus of this session will be on observations made following the Canterbury, New Zealand earthquake sequence and their resulting implications to the state of practice of engineering seismology and geotechnical engineering, both in the Canterbury region and beyond. This session is one of two synergistic sessions on the Canterbury earthquake sequence that is being proposed. The other session is entitled: The Canterbury Earthquake Sequence: Lessons for Response and Recovery and is being proposed by Dave Brunsdon and Ken Elwood. As the name for this latter session implies, it will primarily focus on the lessons learned about response and recovery issues from the Canterbury earthquake sequence. It is envisioned that the two sessions will be held sequentially (in the same room), with this session being held first and immediately followed by the Brunsdon-Elwood session. Also, it is anticipated that some of the presenters from this session will serve as panel members for the Brunsdon-Elwood session. The presenters for this session will be largely invited and papers will be optional. In lieu of submitting a paper to the conference, the presenters may opt to refer to papers that are to be published in the Earthquake Spectra Special Issue on the Canterbury earthquake sequence that is schedule for release in February 2014. An overview of potential presentations and authors is provided below.

W02. The SAFRR Tsunami Scenario: The Use of Science in Tsunami Decision MakingShow/HideSoil/Tsunami

DATE/TIME: Wednesday July 23, 2014 10:30 am - 12:00 pm ROOM: Tikahtnu E/F, FL3 Dena'ina

DESCRIPTION: The SAFRR Tsunami Scenario is a hypothetical depiction of a M9.1 earthquake near the Aleutian Islands and the effects of the resulting tsunami on the people and the built and natural environment of coastal California. The scenario asks the question, how can the physical, engineering, environmental, ecological, and social sciences help coastal communities improve their resilience to tsunamis? Like the ShakeOut and ARkStorm scenarios before it, the Tsunami Scenario focuses on stakeholders: who are they, what measures of hazard, damage, loss, or other impacts do they care about, and how can the USGS and its partners in its Science Application for Risk Reduction (SAFRR) project provide answers to help make risk-management decisions? Stakeholders included major ports, marinas, coastal communities, firefighters and other public and private emergency managers, Caltrans, and people concerned with environmental and macroeconomic impacts of tsunamis. Panelists will discuss these topics, summarizing our data, methodologies and results. We will discuss the mitigation and preparedness efforts underway as a result of the scenario, and discuss the implications of the scenario for research and public policy.

TH18. Seismic Performance of Reinforced Masonry Shear Wall BuildingsShow/HideStructural Systems

DATE/TIME: Thursday July 24, 2014 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm ROOM: Tubughnenq' 3, FL2 Dena'ina

DESCRIPTION: Recent research has indicated that partially grouted masonry shear walls do not respond to seismic loading in the same manner as fully grouted masonry walls. Besides exhibiting different modes of failure, partially grouted shear wall tests have also illustrated lateral load capacities consistently lower than expected from shear strength formulas, that are applicable for gully grouted shear walls, in current building codes. In response to this hazardous situation, the NSF NEES program has initiated a research program to investigate the performance of partially grouted masonry walls, as well as to develop computational techniques to simulate their behavior and shear strength formulas and procedures that are amenable for building codes.
