Preface -- Opening remarks -- Keynote Addresses: -- Earth-science issues of seismic hazards assessment in eastern North America -- Engineering issues of earthquake hazard mitigation in eastern North America -- Part I. Seismicity and tectonics -- Low-displacement seismogenic faults and nonstationary seismicity in the eastern United States -- Seismicity and seismotectonics of southeastern Canada -- In situ stress, crustal strain, and seismic hazard assessment in eastern North America -- General discussion: Part I -- Luncheon address: -- Earthquake hazards: A political perspective -- Part II. Seismic ground motions -- Quantitative ground-motion estimates -- Implications of some important strong-motion recordings of mid-plate earthquakes -- Earthquake source and ground-motion characteristics in eastern North America -- General discussion: Part II -- Part III. Probabilistic seismic hazards assessment -- Implications of eastern ground-motion characteristics for seismic hazard assessment in eastern North America -- Issues in strong ground-motion estimation in eastern North America -- Combination of seismic-source and historic estimates of earthquake hazard -- General discussion: Part III -- Summary panel discussion I -- Part IV. Soil liquefaction: Principles and examples from earthquakes in the eastern United States -- Some basic aspects of soil liquefaction during earthquakes -- Liquefaction evidence for repeated holocene earthquakes in the coastal region of South Carolina -- Earthquake-induced liquefaction in the northeastern United States: Historical effects and geological constraints -- Extent and character of soil liquefaction during the 1811-12 New Madrid earthquakes -- General discussion: Part IV -- Part V. Theoretical basis for earthquake engineering design in regions with moderate seismic hazards -- Current design spectra: Background and limitations -- An assessment of uncertainties in seismic response -- Lessons learned from recent moderate earthquakes -- General discussion: Part V -- Part VI. Seismic design of buildings and special structures, and nonstructural components in moderate seismic zones -- Wind versus seismic design -- Concrete structures -- Seismic design of masonry -- A review of current practices for seismic design of building cladding -- Earthquake-resistant bridge design -- Seismic design considerations for buried pipelines -- General discussion: Part VI -- Summary panel discussion II -- Part VII. Seismic rehabilitation of structures -- Damage prediction for existing buildings -- Seismic rehabilitation techniques for buildings -- Costs and benefits of seismic rehabilitation -- General discussion: Part VII -- Part VIII. Public policy: Urban design standards -- Experience with changes in design requirements in the Boston area -- Seismic building code efforts in the central United States -- Estimation of earthquake losses for a large eastern urban center: Scenario events for New York City -- General discussion: Part VIII -- Closing remarks -- Index of contributors
