View Resource The Earthquake Engineering Online Archive

The Earthquake Engineering Online Archive is a database of significant publicly-funded research and development literature, data and software on earthquake, structural, and geotechnical engineering, photographs, and engravings and allegorical images from the era before photography. Users may search and download photos and other images of earthquake-related damage and effects. Low-resolution...

View Resource NISEE: National Information Service for Earthquake Engineering

The National Information Service for Earthquake Engineering (NISEE) has a huge collection of earthquake data and images for researchers or anyone with a passing interest in these destructive forces. Operated at the University of California, Berkeley, the site has ten "eBooks" that range in topic from introductory earthquake engineering to earthquake risk-reduction measures. A giant database is...

View Resource Earthquake Engineering

The main objective of this site is to illustrate to students of structural and architectural engineering the problems and solutions in attaining efficient earthquake-resistant structures and facilities. Discussed and illustrated on the site are the different sources of damage that can be triggered by an earthquake.

View Resource Seismic Shaking and Earthquake Engineering

In this exercise, students will investigate the effects of earthquakes on Earth materials and on buildings. Introductory materials discuss seismic shaking (ground motion), material amplification by loose or unconsolidated deposits, and the concept of fundamental period. Using the supplied data tables, they will determine peak ground acceleration, compare ground shaking on bay mud, alluvium, and...

View Resource University Consortium of Instructional Shake Tables: Enhancing Education in Earthquake Engineering

With over 50 member institutions worldwide, the University Consortium of Instructional Shake Tables (UCIST) is a major effort to "foster collaborative teaching and learning" within the earthquake engineering discipline. This paper, which was presented at the International Meeting on Civil Engineering Education in September 2003, discusses how UCIST has contributed to undergraduate curricula and...
